The Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, Sam Nartey George has donated some motorbikes to the police in the area as part of his plans to strengthen and improve security within the constituency.
According to Mr George, the donation, which amounted to over Gh¢40,000, was in response to appeals by the Tema Regional Police Command.
“This [Ningo-Prampram] is arguably the fastest growing district in the country due to the high number of people moving from Accra to the outskirts of the town. Areas that some years ago were farmlands have been converted to residential areas. Despite the number of people moving in to settle here, there hasn’t been a growth in police numbers and logistics,” he said.
“In the last four years, this brings to twenty the number of motorbikes donated to the police and two pickups as part of my support to the police. Because of the capacity of the engines, these motorbikes cost us 40,000 cedis. This is not the end, within the next six months we’ll provide them with more logistics and also give them an office accommodation befitting of them since the existing one is an eyesore,” he added.
Receiving the motorbikes, the Tema Regional Police Commander, DCOP Barima Tweneboah Sasrako II lauded the intervention of the MP saying it will ensure better, effective, and efficient police operations in the Ningo-Prampram area.
Mr Sam George also donated three air-conditioned sets to the Fire Service personnel in the area to ensure their efficiency.
