Dr Aboagye posited that, this visit by the police highest hierarchy to the families should have happened along ago, but it only took the effort of the new acting IGP to do that just as he assumed office.
According to him, the IGP’s promotion did not come by accident, but it is a befitting reward for his devotion, dedication and commitment to his duties and responsibilities of his previous roles as Chief Staff Officer to the Inspector-General of Police from (1990-1996); Director-General/Welfare, Director-General/Human Resources; Regional Commander, Director-General/Legal and Prosecutions and Deputy IGP.
With all these attributes, Dr Aboagye noted that, Mr Oppong-Boanuh can provide great leadership, wisdom and strive to take the Ghana Police service to a much greater heights and achievements.
He therefore, seized the opportunity to congratulate the acting IGP on his appointment. Hr was optimistic that the enviable experience of the acting IGP in the Service will contribute immensely in maintaining Law and Order, particularly in the areas of armed robbery, drugs, the use of motorbikes after 7pm, indiscipline on the road and most importantly tackling the recent trend of kidnapping.
