COP Kofi Boakye, 2 other retired officers join Mahama’s camp

Three retired police officers renowned for their outstanding service in anti-crime efforts have officially joined the campaign team of former Ghanaian President John Dramani Mahama, who is the flagbearer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the upcoming 2024 elections.

The former police commissioners include:

COP Kofi Boakye (Commander One):

Known as Commander One, COP Kofi Boakye has maintained a close relationship with John Mahama, leading to speculation about his potential candidacy as the running mate for the NDC’s presidential candidate.

Boakye, the former head of the Ghana Police Service’s Legal and Prosecution Division, earned a strong reputation as one of the country’s most popular and respected senior police officers.

Notably, Commander One spearheaded high-profile crime-fighting efforts, including the successful apprehension of the notorious armed robber Ataa Ayi in 2005.

Former IGP Mohammed Alhassan:

Former Inspector General of Police Mohammed Alhassan, honored with national accolades in 2013, has pledged his support to Mahama’s presidential bid.

Alhassan was among the dignitaries recognized by President Mahama in 2013 for their distinguished service to the nation.

COP Bright Oduro (Rtd):

Retired COP Bright Oduro, the former Director General of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), has openly supported Mahama’s campaign.

Oduro, who controversially left his position in 2017, had previously acknowledged political influence in police officer promotions, stating that the process involves political considerations, with final approval by the president and recommendations from the Police Council.

Oduro faced accusations, including engaging with land guards for illicit activities, as raised by Assin Central Member of Parliament Kennedy Agyapong.

These three retired police officers have been actively participating in various campaign events across the country, showcasing their support for John Mahama’s presidential aspirations.

Their presence has been notable during events such as the 24-hour economy walk in Kumasi and the ongoing ‘Building Ghana Tour’ in the Eastern region.
