A financial analyst Joe Jackson has described the appointment of  ACP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah as the acting Director General of the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service as "untidy."

Speaking on Saturday, he said ACP Addo-Danquah's role in the controversial A Plus saga makes her elevation as CID boss sensitive.

He told TV3's New Day programme that a neutral person should have been appointed to head the department.

ACP Addo-Danquah took over from COP Bright Oduro who was fired from his position three months to his retirement.

He is due for retirement in January 2018.

A memo from the Inspector General of Police, David Asante Apeatu, asked ACP Addo-Danquah to act as the CID boss.

Sources say COP Oduro's ouster from office was due to several petitions against him in connection with land related issues.

He is accused of giving cover to deadly land guards, especially in the Greater Accra Region and that his continuous stay in office will hinder plans by the Greater Accra Regional Police command to clampdown on land guards menace in the region.
