Brigadier General Joseph Nunoo-Mensah (Rtd), Human Development Security Coordinator at the Office of the Former President John Mahama, has handed over a police station worth GH₵ 350,000 to the chiefs and people of Agona Kwanyako.
The project was as a result of Mr Mahama’s directive when he visited Kwanyakohene’s palace in 2016 during his election campaign tour in the Central Region.
The request for a police station was made by the Chief of Kwanyako, Nana Ampim Darko V to ensure the reduction of the increasing crime wave in and around the town.
Brig Nunoo-Mensah appealed to politicians to endeavour to fulfill social contracts they made to the people, adding that public expectations should always be met.
He said the time had come for politicians to stop their extravagant lifestyles and abandon the needs of the people, since government alone could not provide everything.
The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mr John Kudalor, who inaugurated the police station, commended Brig Nunoo-Mensah, for the project.
The station has been assigned a Chief Inspector and Ammunition offices, Criminal Investigation Department, two fortified cells, Charge office, toilet and urinal facility.
He said the Police administration had a department, which addressed problems that might occur between the Police and the civilian population for amicable settlement.
The IGP said a police vehicle and personnel would be provided to the new police station and called for cooperation between the Police and the residents.
He said the 2016 elections, were over and asked the people to avoid issues that could spark off violence in the area to ensure peace and tranquility.
Nana Ampim Darko, who is also Kyidomhene of Nyakrom Traditional Area, thanked the Former President Mahama and Brig Nunoo-Mensah for the provision of the police station.
