Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID) of the Ghana Police Service Maame Tiwaa Addo-Danquah has said she will not resign from her post as a section of the public has been demanding because she did not apply for the job.
Several Ghanaians has called for her to resign following her utterances regarding the status of the police investigation into the missing girls incident and how the process has been handled.
In April this year, Maame Tiwaa Addo-Daquah assured the public the police knew the whereabouts of the three girls but up until now, the girls are nowhere to be found.
“We know where the girls are,” urging the families to “keep on keeping on,” she said in a public address.
According to Maame Tiwaah, her resignation will not solve the mystery surrounding the Takoradi missing girls.
“My position is not a position that I applied for. ….I don’t need to resign. Resigning is like resigning from the Ghana Police service, and the position is not something I applied for. When the time comes for me to be transferred, I will be transferred.
“When you have everybody calling for your resignation, you ask yourself, is that the one that will solve the problem. There’s a problem for us to solve and that is my focus. I want to bring whatever situation that we have at a very conclusive stage not to waste your time thinking you want to resign or not,” she said at the maiden Commonwealth Speaker Forum held in Accra Wednesday.
The missing girls, Priscilla Blessing Bentum was first kidnapped on August 17th 2018, while Ruthlove Quayeson was kidnapped on December 4, 2018, and Priscilla Mantsebeah Koranchie also kidnapped on December 21 2018.
