The former Minister of Energy, Honorable Boakye Agyarko has donated a Mahindra 4×4 pickup to the Odumasi Police Command at Korletsom. During the donation he said “Lower Manya Krobo must develop,and for this change and development to come to pass citizens in the Municipality must also change their attitudes”.
According to him, the essence of this is to enhance safety and security in the police service at Odumasi, as it attracts investors to the community, and in order for this to happen, it’s necessary for the area to be safe and secure for such developments to take place. The safety and security of Krobo has been in doubt for a while as a result of the lack of resources and not commitment.
He added that, being a citizen of land, he has taken it upon himself to help develop the municipality and has encouraged others to do same. He said he has learnt two principle things ever since he started growing. which are; to make life better for someone else every day and learn something different every day.
The district police commander ASP Sarlomey who received the donation, thanked hon. Agyarko for his kind gesture. He said the car is going to help them discharge their duties effectively and will enhance safety and security in the municipality. In his statement, Mr. Sarlomey disclosed that, lack of vehicle for the police patrol team has been one of their biggest challenges but with the help of the former energy minister that problem has been resolved.
The keys to the said vehicle was given to the Municipal Chief Executive of lower Manya Krobo, Hon. Simon Kweku Tetteh, which was then handed over to the Police Commander. Honourable Tetteh, made known at the gathering of a police station which was recently put up with the help of the government and has promised to build another station for the people in the rural areas which falls within his jurisdiction. He also urged the police to take good care of vehicle which has been presented to them.
