On her part, Executive Director of EOCO, COP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah welcomed the delegation and congratulated them on their appointment.
She noted that she had served in several capacities with the current President and therefore had no doubt that the Association was in great hands.

Some of them included the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), Ministry of Health, National Petroleum Authority (NPA), Controller and Accountant Generals’ Department (CAGD) and KPMG.
This association would therefore build closer collaboration between these institutions.
