By Ghanaian Chronicle

THE UPPER West Regional Minister, Alhaji Amin Amidu Sulemana, has charged police personnel in the region to strictly enforce the law, particularly, those regulating traffic, to forestall the spate of motor accidents.

He said the increasing spate of motor accidents in the region, and its attendant deaths of the youth, was alarming, and urged the police to act quickly to reduce the phenomenon.

He pointed out that there were a lot of deaths on our roads in the region, and appealed to the police to enforce law and order to reduce the untimely deaths of our youth.

Alhaji Sulemana, who was on a three-day tour of the  region, said while the government was making efforts to help equip security agencies in the country, it was important for the security personnel in the region to make good use of the little resources to help sustain peace in the region.

Addressing personnel of the Police Service, the Regional Minister asked them not to relax as the 2012 general elections was drawing near, but must rather work hard to maintain the prevailing peace, before and after the December polls.

The Minister gave the assurance that the government would not shirk its responsibility in supporting security personnel for peace to prevail in the region.

The Deputy Police Commander, Mr. Duku Ampofo, on his part, said his outfit faced challenges, including vehicles and infrastructure.

According to him, out of 32 vehicles, only 18 were functional, with 14 broken down.

He called for the expansion of police cells to include female cells, saying the lack of it had compelled them to keep women suspects at Jirapa or Tamale.

The Deputy Police Commander assured the Regional Minister that they would make good use of the available resources and ensure peace in the region.
