With effect from Monday, August 8, 2022, President Akufo-Addo made certain adjustments to the national security apparatus and named Edward Asomani, the deputy national security coordinator, to serve in that capacity.
The National Security Council’s advice, made in cooperation with the Public Services Commission and mandated by the constitution, must be received before Mr. Asomani’s nomination can be officially confirmed.
The President has reallocated his former boss, Ambassador Major General (Rtd) Francis Adu-Amanfoh, who served as the National Security Coordinator, to serve as Special Advisor to the President for the Accra Initiative.
With effect from Monday, August 8, 2022, Nana Attobrah Quaicoe, who is now the Deputy Director-General of the National Intelligence Bureau (NIB), formerly the Bureau of National Intelligence (BNI), would operate as the Director-General of the NIB.
His approval is also contingent on receiving the National Security Council’s legally mandated advice, which was provided after consulting with the Public Services Commission.
Kwaku Domfeh, his former employer and the Director General of the NIB, has been promoted to the position of Ambassador-designate to the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
This was stated in a press release from the Presidency’s Director of Communications, Eugene Arhin, dated Friday, August 5, 2022.
