COP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah has been appointed by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as the new Executive Director of the Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO). The high-ranking police officer, until this appointment, was the former Director-General, Police Professional and Standards Bureau (PPSB) of the Ghana Police Service, dailyguidenetwork.com has reported.
Her appointment, which takes effect from Monday, January 10, 2022, according to the Daily Guide report, was contained in a letter from the presidency, stating that the former head of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) will take over from Steve Raymond Dapaa-Addo, a consummate lawyer.
It is also reported that the outgoing boss of the EOCO “may be elevated to chair the EOCO board.” It will be recalled that Maame Yaa Tiwaa was released from the service by the current Inspector General of Police, COP Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, to allow for her to take on new assignments at the presidency.
“I am directed by the Inspector General of Police to release you from your current schedule and report to the Chief of Staff at the Presidency to be re-assigned. Please accept the compliments of the Inspector General of Police,” a letter dated December 13, 2021, and signed by COP Christian Tetteh Yohuno, Director General, Administration, and addressed to Maame Tiwaa, had said. “COP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo Danquah, a former Director General of CID was later appointed Director General Welfare and member of POMAB, the highest decision-making body in the police, outside the Police Council which is chaired by the Vice President,” the report added.FOLLOW ME ON SOCIAL MEDIA
