Will my resignation produce missing Takoradi girls? – CID Boss asks critics

Takoradi kidnapped girls Takoradi kidnapped girls

The Director-General of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) COP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo Danquah has questioned what purpose calls for her resignation will serve.

There have been increasing calls for Maame Tiwaa Addo-Danquah to resign following her claim that the police is aware of the whereabouts of the Kidnapped Takoradi girls but has not been able to produce them almost a year after they went missing.

Speaking at the maiden Commonwealth Speaker Forum held in Accra Wednesday, COP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo Danquah said told her resignation will not solve the mystery surrounding the 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.”

She added: “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.”
