The Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID), Maame Tiwaa Addo-Danquah has said she is not resigning from her post as many Ghanaians demand because she did not apply for the job.
Several Ghanaians has clamoured for her immediate resignation over their inability to rescue the three missing Takoradi girls.
They have tagged her as an incompetent leader of the CID especially after she declared that she knew the whereabouts of the missing girl in April.
“We know where the girls are,” urging the families to “keep on keeping on,” she said in a public address.
It has been over 5 months since her declaration yet, the whereabouts of the girls are still unknown.
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.
She further added that;
“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,”
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.
