Her appointment, which takes effect from November 1, is her second promotion in 10 years.

The appointment comes after she was made the acting director of the CID following the firing of the substantive CID boss, Bright Oduro.

Her elevation to acting CID boss has drawn fury from a section of Ghanaians who believed she covered up corruption allegation made by A Plus against President Akufo-Addo’s deputy chiefs of staff: Francis Asenso-Boakye and Abu Jinapor.

A financial analyst Joe Jackson has described her appointment as the acting CID boss as “untidy.”

Three individuals of Governance Watch –  Stephen Kwabena Attuh, Executive Director; Fred Adomako Williams, Deputy Executive Director and Nii Adottey Michell, Executive Secretary – have also petitioned the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), to investigate her over her role in the A Plus saga.
