Dr. Bawumia Thanks Police For Their Sacrifices

The Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has, on behalf of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the people of Ghana, expressed the nation’s gratitude to the officers and men of the Ghana Police Service for their continuous efforts to maintain law and order.

Dr Bawumia also expressed his condolences to the families of those who lost their lives in the line of duty, and pledged government’s commitment to resource the Service to enable it discharge its duties in a professional manner.

“Permit me to express the gratitude of the people of Ghana to you for your dedication to duty and resilience in the execution of your mandate” Vice President Bawumia stated at the 2017 West African Security Services Activities (WASSA) of the Ghana Police Service in Accra on Friday 20th April, 2018.

The WASSA is an annual get-together of members of the security agencies in an informal setting to review the year’s activities and exchange frank ideas on the way forward.

The programme, was attended by the heads of the other security agencies as well as the Minister of the Interior, Ambrose Dery.

“Our gratitude and sympathies go to the families of the gallant men and women lost in the course of duty through unwarranted attacks by some criminals. Let me say that you made your fallen officers proud with the speed and dispatch by which you pursued the perpetrators of such heinous crimes that resulted in their arrest. We say thank you for your resolute and professionalism by which you undertake such selfless and noble tasks.”

Vice President Bawumia commended the officers and men of the Service for delivering on their mandate despite the challenges, and promised government’s continued support.

“I wish to commend you once again for the sacrifices you have been making with very scarce logistics, and under trying conditions. I am also aware of the efforts you are making day and night to keep our communities safe for the socio-economic development of our nation.

“It is noteworthy and indeed admirable that the Police Administration persisted in its efforts and administered the limited resources to achieve those monumental feats in the past year.  It is this attitude of commitment and dedication to duty that has culminated into the successes recorded in 2017.”

Dr Bawumia further stated, “Having made all these demands on the Police, it is just proper that the government provides the resources you need to discharge your responsibilities.  It is in the light of this that over 120 Pickups were given to you to enhance your operations. I wish to assure you that Government has advanced in its efforts to procure the requisite logistics, equipment and other resources for you as promised. Government is of firm conviction that, once these resources are made available your efficiency and overall performance will rate higher.”
