Beef-up security in the Metropolis
Western Region Treasurer of the New Patriotic Party, Anna Horma Akaisi Miezah is appealing to the police service and other security agencies to beef up patrols and police visibility in the metropolis.

Madam Akaisi Miezah said the party will continue to impress on government and the security agencies to man up against crime.
“…we should beef-up security because once we are aware that something [oil and gas business] like this is coming up and will attract more criminals in the area, we need to beef-up security in the area. As a party we’re going to impress upon them to ensure that the rights are done. People have to be secured” Madam Akaisi Miezah charged.
