T’di Missing Girls: My resignation not the solution — CID boss
The Director General of the Police CID Maame Tiwaa Addo-Danquah has described as misplaced, calls for her resignation as head of the investigation body.
According to her, resigning from the service would not in any way resolve the case leading to the mystery surrounding the Takoradi missing girls.
Speaking at an event organised by the Commonwealth Africa, the under-fire CID boss says her current position is not permanent and the decision to leave lies with the appointing authority.
“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.
Her reply comes on the back of numerous calls by a section of the public that she should quit her position because she has failed woefully with the Takoradi girls issue among other security matters.
Just last week, the CID retrieved some skeletons from the backyard of the prime suspect in Takoradi, Western Region. A team of forensics experts are conducting DNA tests on the skeletons to ascertain if they are the remains of the three girls.
Meanwhile, families of the teenage girls who were kidnapped are still appealing to the government to help them find their children.
