He cautioned personal to be minded of the rules and also assured the public of better policing come December.
“We are going to be professional in everything that we do. If Police personnel go wayward, we have our regulations that deal with whatever we are supposed to do on that day.”
“If people don't comply with it, we have our own system of taking them through disciplinary procedures. So we can assure Ghanaians that will make sure that all police officers are professional on that day.”
