Due to his professionalism and bravery, Kwame Asuah Takyi, the Comptroller-General of the Ghana Immigration Service, has promoted Emmanuel Ofosu-Acheampong to the post of Assistant Immigration Control Officer I (AICO I).
When a young female student was allegedly abducted in June 2023 while using the public transport system (Trotro) from Nsawam to Dome, AICO I Emmanuel Ofosu-Acheampong of the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS), stationed at the Kasoa Command in the Central East Region, followed his gut feeling and intervened to stop the kidnapping.
According to an official statement issued by Chief Superintendent Amoako Atta, the Head of Public Affairs, the Comptroller-General honoured the brave officer on behalf of the National Immigration Management Committee.
Mr. Takyi expressed his gratitude for the officer’s quick thinking and vigilance in rescuing the young student from the supposed kidnappers.
He continued by expressing his amazement at how widely spread the report had become.
The officer, AICO I Emmanuel Ofosu-Acheampong, “acted responsibly and promptly despite the risks involved on a busy road,” the Comptroller-General stated. “The public, security experts, and opinion leaders across the country have praised him for his actions.”
Mr. Takyi requested the recently promoted Officer to keep leading by example wherever he goes and to fly the GIS flag even higher.
Taking courage from the advancement, he gave him advice to maintain his discipline.
He urged them not to get conceited as a result of their elevation and to be deserving representatives of the Service by remaining humble.
Along with a plaque, diploma, and citation in recognition of his valour, AICO I Emmanuel Ofosu-Acheampong also earned a promotion.
