There is simmering tension among Senior Officers, Inspectorate and other ranks of the Ghana Police Service following suspicion that the Commissioner of Police, James Oppong Boanuh was deliberately appointed Deputy IGP as a ploy to force the Police Council and the President to offer him a two-year contract extension at the end of his service.

According to sources in the service, COP Oppong Boanuh, who officially turns 60 September 8 was on leave prior to retirement as procedure demands but was appointed to place him in pole position as the next IGP when David Asante-Apeatu retires on August, 14, next year.

Information gathered by the Finder newspaper indicates that Senior Officers, Inspectorate and other ranks are infuriated that another retiree is in waiting for the position of IGP.

Paul Tawiah Quaye, Mohammed Ahmed Alhassan and John Kudalor all had two years contract extension after clocking 60 years.

Current IGP David Asante-Apeatu was given a two year extension of service as IGP when he was due to retire on August 14 2017.

Inside police sources say the practice of offering contract to retirees in the service is a great source of discontent as it blocks the promotion of personnel to the top.
