She will now be the Director-level Chief of Policy Planning and Guidance. According to Lone, Akombe’s promotion comes with lucrative benefits and also accompany additional protection.

“Roselyn Akombe’s new responsibilities: Some have asked for more info about this. She is now the Director-level Chief of Policy Planning and Guidance. This post’s many responsibilities include preparing conflict-prevention measures in countries and regions facing turmoil around the world. This requires working not just with governments but civil society and other groups who are vital to restoring or ensuring peace.
The level Roselyn is now at is a senior one with significant input into formulating overall UN strategies and policies, all the more so since she is working in the political arena.”Read his Facebook post.

Last year, Akombe hit headlines after unceremoniously resigning as a commissioner at the electoral body only eight days to the repeat presidential poll of October 26, 2017.

She fled the country and issued her resignation from the US claiming that her life was in danger.
