A playwright, Mr. Ebo Whyte, has urged personnel of the Ghana Police Service to protect and bring honour to their profession.
He, however, commended the personnel for their dedication to the country even at the peril of their lives.
Mr. Whyte made the call at this year’s West African Security Services Association (WASSA) of the Greater Accra Regional Police Command, last Friday in Accra.
The occasion brought together dignitaries, personnel of the police and other security agencies, who were entertained by the Police Central band, artiste Superintendent Kofi Sarpong and Okyeame Kwame.
Mr. Whyte urged security agencies to contribute to national development, saying “serve Ghana well, leave a legacy for future generation and you will never be in need” .
The Regional Commander, Commissioner of Police (COP) George Akuffo Dampare, advised the youth not to engage in any acts of violence during this year’s election.
“The youth must not engage in election disputes, this is why the police have taken time to interact and sensitise the youth to political issues,” he said.
He urged the public to be conscious and report any suspicious activities or characters to the police.
The Founder and leader of the United Renaissance Party (URP) Kofi Wayo, asked government to resource the Ghana Police Service to boost their activities.
