My attention has been drawn to comments by the Acting National Security Coordinator, Major General Francis Adu Amanfo, alleging that I was a non-performer in my Regional Security
Liaison Officer’s role and was involved in criminal activities which led to my removal from office.
Ordinarily, I would not have responded to such accusations but I find the comments by Major General Adu Amanfo distastefully unprofessional and a direct attack on my unblemished
professional career spanning over three decades in the Ghana Education Service and the Ghana Police Service.
Even though I am glad that he indicated that an investigation will be conducted into my tenure, it is apt to set the records straight and state that the alleged criminal activities are completely
false and a figment of his imagination.
I have always exhibited high professional standards in my work and my record in the various capacities are there for all to see.
Work Experience prior to my role as Ashanti Regional Security Liaison Officer.
I joined the Ghana Police Service through their officer’s cadet programme in 1989 and passed out in 1990 as an Assistant Superintendent of Police and was assigned as the Secretary to the then Inspector General of Police, J.Y.A. Kwofie. I served in this capacity
for almost seven years and the longest serving secretary to the longest serving IGP in Ghana.

My above work experience has been achieved on the basis of professionalism and integrity
without any iota of criminality and non-performance.
With over two decades of service as a senior police officer in the Ghana Police Service, there
was not a single allegation against my hard earned reputation and for this reason I find the
comments made by the Acting National Security Coordinator as a misrepresentation of facts
and unfortunate cultivated lies by an Officer of the ilk of a retired Major-General.
