ASP Isaac Otsin, Somanya Police Commander is calling on all stakeholders in the various communities to help eradicate the attitude of most youth during funerals. A worrying situation in the Krobo communities is the sudden change in culture towards funeral, which causes disturbance that are mostly witness during mortuary and burial moments.
ASP Isaac made his concern on Drive Alive, an educative radio talk show which educates and advocate for drivers, pedestrians and all road users at Rite 90.1 FM.
According to him, the actions of the youth is against the Laws of the country and there’s a need for all stakeholders in the various communities and municipalities like the chiefs, opinion leaders, youth advocacy groups and all who matter to step up their games on the security alarming issue. He added that, most youth who engage in this acts are always seen dressed almost half naked on the streets, act that against our culture values.
He continued that as police officers, their sole responsibility is to provide security to the citizenry and as such always work with the law. ASP justified the say of most citizens that, “offenders who relate to leaders in the communities are not punished when caught foul of the rules and regulations of the country.’’ He cautioned by stressing that, equality before the law to mean nobody is above the law.
Additionally, the “hardworking” police officer stressed that, it is compulsory every driver must go through Ghana High Way Codes to be educated on the use of road signs before sitting behind the steering wheel, since it shall serve as qualification for driver’s license.
The ASP used the opportunity to educate drivers and pedestrians on how to use the zebra crossing. He therefore cautioned drivers in the Krobo enclave to learn lessons from Rite FM Drive Alive education programme, police, MTTD personels, and other road safety activists.
