As proof of his commitment to improve security in the Effia Kwesimintsim Municipality, Founder of the Prince Armah Foundation, Dr Prince Hamidu Armah has donated three Sukida SK125-4B motocycles to the Ghana Police Service, Kwesiminstim District Command.
An undisclosed cash donation was also made to the police, through the District Command Superintendent Peter Lennox Aidoo, to support routine patrols and policing in the area.
Dr Prince Armah cried that the crime rate in the municipality, particularly Kwesimintsim needs urgent attention and combating.
He noted as he presented these items to the police, the need for individuals and communities to support the police service in fighting crime.
” We need to support the institutions that offer protection to us and the police play a very important role in our safety and security and that’s why giving the fact that there has been some issues around, I felt that we needed to support the police. Government alone cannot provide all the facilities they will need to operate and so individuals collectively provide that support for the police service. Where I live is very close to Anaji and recently there has been issues and therefore the bikes have been donated with the view of handing over to that particular unit so they can boost the visibility of the police in that particular area” Dr Prince Armah noted
Kwesimintsim District Police Commander Superintendent Peter Lennox Aidoo who received the motor bikes commended the Prince Armah Foundation for the gesture and appealed to other organisations to emulate same. He promised the motor bikes will be put to good use.
“What doctor has done, I’m marveled because hardly will you see such a gesture. These motor bikes will help us a lot. Recently in Anaji there was a robbery indecent so these motor bikes given to us today will go a long way to augment the patrols we are already doing there and we will be able to go to places cars cannot go. We primes to take good care of them so that even after a year you will still come and see them in a very good state” he indicated.
Superintendent Peter Lennox Aidoo further indicated that, the command is working assiduously to ensure the armed robbers are apprehended. “With the robbery, we are on course we are getting hints about them and I know very soon we will arrest them. Now we have about ten neighbourhood watch allover Kwesimintsim and the police has also been patrolling the communities” Superintendent Aidoo said.
