Konongo (Ash), Sept 15, GNA - A GHȼ268,000.00 bungalow built to provide decent housing for police officers in Konongo has been inaugurated in a ceremony.

It was funded by the Asante-Akim Central Municipal Assembly from its share of the District Assemblies Common Fund (DACF).

Police Superintendent Bossman Ohene-Boadi, the Divisional Commander, hailed the project as a welcomed relief, considering their struggle with accommodation.

About 50 per cent of officers in the division, he indicated, was without official accommodation, a situation that needed to be tackled head-on.

He added that this was unhelpful to effective policing and should not be allowed to continue.

Supt Ohene-Boadi called for increased public support to help house police officers posted to the various stations across the municipality.

He applauded the assembly for the strong backing over the years and said he was confident that this would be sustained.

Alhaji Braimah Boyong, the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), said the assembly would give every necessary assistance to the police to enable them to perform.

He reminded the officers to maintain high standards of professionalism - should be firm and even-handed in the performance of their duties. GNA
