President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has appointed James Oppong-Boanuh as  Acting Inspector General of Police (IGP).  

This follows a directive from the President for IGP David Asante-Appeatu to proceed on leave with immediate effect.

Mr. David Asante-Appeatu’s leave is pending prior to his retirement from the Ghana Police Service.

A statement signed by the Director of Communications of the Presidency, Eugene Arhin on Monday said, ” President Akufo-Addo has asked the Deputy Inspector General of Police, James Oppong-Boanuh to act as IGP until a substantive IGP is appointed in accordance with the Constitution.”

COP Oppong-Boanuh who has equally hit his retirement age was granted an extension by President Akufo-Addo in 2018 after he wrote to the Interior Ministry seeking extension of his service.

President Akufo-Addo in October 2018 granted him a one-year extension which ends in October 2019.
