Mrs. Tenge announced her exit which takes immediate effect on Friday in a post to journalists she has worked with in the Volta region.

Until she arrived in the Volta region, Mrs. Tenge was the head of Public Affairs Unit of the Ghana Police Service in the Greater Accra region for several years.


She was first appointed into the service as a Public Affairs Officer in 2005 and stationed at the Media Monitoring Center of the Police Public Affairs Directorate, National Headquarters where she served and later became the supervisor, placing her in a vantage role to conduct media analysis of police and security-related information and deal with potential negative publicity likely to affect the reputation of the institution.


Effia Tenge introduced the Police Regional News Magazine ‘Police Diary’ to ensure regular information flow on law enforcement activities that promotes police professionalism, respect for human rights, transparency in police operations, and accountability to the public.


She was a lead advocate against sexual and gender based violence and also led several sensitization campaigns on the crime of kidnapping in schools.


Just recently, Mrs. Effia Tenge led another campaign against substance abuse and school hooliganism across the Volta region.


She is regarded an astute communicator with an enviable working relationship with the media and the general public.


Her premature retirement has undoubtedly come as a shock.
