How Incoming IGP COP Dampare Was Denied The Job Twice – Prof Anin explains

The New IGP Discusses Banking Security With BoG and Association of Bankers

Police Commissioner George Akuffo Dampare could have been appointed Inspector General of Police (IGP) as early as January 2017, when David Asante-Apeatu was appointed.

When Asante-Apeatu resigned in mid-2019, Dampare was re-eligible for the position, which went to outgoing IGP James Oppong-Boanuh.

The presidency’s announcement of his appointment in acting capacity on July 21 is thus deserved for a man who has spent his entire career as a police officer, rising through the ranks to the top of the Ghana Police Service ladder.

On Thursday, July 22, Prof Kwesi Aning of the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Center, KAIPTC, explained how contract offers to the two previous IGPs had denied Dampare the top job.

“Let us not forget, I believe he has been jumped over twice, because two people who had passed retirement age, I believe Asante-Apeatu and Oppong-Boanuh, had both passed retirement age and then were given these extensions; so Dr. Dampare had been passed over twice,” he said on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana.

He also expressed confidence in Dampare’s ability to revitalize the service and the country’s overall security architecture.
