Newly confirmed IGP, James Oppong-Boanuh gets two years contract extension


President Nana Akufo-Addo has finally confirmed James Oppong-Boanuh as the substantive Inspector General of Police(IGP) with a two-year contract extension.

His confirmation comes barely two months after he was appointed into an Acting position following the exit of David Asante Apeatu.

James Oppong Boanuh was appointed Deputy IGP in 2017 ahead of his mandatory retirement age of 60 years.

Following James Oppong-Boanuh’s confirmation as the new IGP, the Ghana Police Service took to their official Facebook page to congratulate him.

“Congratulations to IGP Mr. James Oppong-Boanuh, on his appointment as substantive Inspector-General of Police, and extension of service for two years by the President of Ghana, in accordance with the Constitution.

The Police Administration considers both the appointment and extension as confidence reposed in Mr. Oppong-Boanuh and endorsement of actions started by him to prevent and reduce the fear of crime in the country.

Heartiest congratulations IGP Mr. James Oppong-Boanuh!!!”
