President Akufo Addo has upon the recommendation of the Police Council extended the service of the Ashanti Regional Police Commander, COP Kwasi Mensah Duku for two years.

This takes effect from the expiration of his terminal leave on 1oth July 2019. The contract appointment shall, therefore, expire on 9th July 2021.

A statement signed by the IGP, David Asante Apeatu and copied to Kasapafmonline.com said “ It should be noted that the period of your limited engagement is essentially to afford you the opportunity to enable you to continue to impact and bring to bear your rich professional experience and expertise on the Service.

“The terms of your appointment, including salary, allowances and other conditions of service, with the necessary modifications, be the same as those applicable to the rank of Commissioner of Police.”
