COP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah has said she is “more than prepared” to be Ghana’s first-ever female Inspector General of Police (IGP), adding that she will “never turn down” such an offer, if ever made to her by the appointing authority.

“I’ll never turn down an IGP appointment, never”, she told Atinka TV’s Abena Dufie Aboagye on Saturday, 11 May 2019, adding: “If the appointing authority feels I am competent for the position, I don’t see why I will turn it down and suggest that it be given to somebody else”.

“What has the person got that I lack?” she queried.

According to her, she has risen through the ranks at the Ghana Police Service over the decades and ready to assume the reins of the police hierarchy. “It’s all about your ability”, she said.

“I laughed when I recently heard that someone has said Ghana is not ready for a female IGP. I guffawed when I heard that because when we went to school, we all had the same training, so, why do some people think women cannot do what men can do? We’ve had two female Chief Justices, we’ve had a female speaker, we have ministers who are females, so, if you say we’re not ready for a female IGP, when are we going to be ready?

“I don’t see why anybody should say women are not ready for the IGP position. Women could even do better than men. Leadership is all about how you manage the people you work with. … Your ability to manage your human resource is what makes you a very good leader.

“The appointing authority will take so many things into consideration. It’s not about your gender.

“I’m more than prepared to be Ghana’s next IGP”, she stressed.
