Barring any last-minute hitch, acting Inspector General of Ghana Police (IGP) COP James Oppong-Boanuh would be named substantive man in charge.

According Joy News, President Nana Akufo-Addo has submitted the name of the acting IGP to the Council of State for approval.

If confirmed as IGP, COP Oppong-Boanuh is expected to be given a contract extension because he is almost due for retirement.

The President also presented the name of COP Christian Tetteh Yohuno, to be considered as Deputy Inspector General of Police.

COP Christian Tetteh Yohuno is currently the director-general of the MTTD.

Sources close to the corridors of government say COP Christian Tetteh Yohuno was considered as deputy IGP because of his vast and rich field experience.

The Council of State is expected to meet on Friday, October 4, 2019, to deliberate and approve or disapprove the names submitted by President Akufo-Addo.

COP Oppong-Boanuh succeeded David Asante-Apeatu, who retired on August 14, 2019, having served as the IGP for two-and-a-half years.
