Busunya, (B/A), May 4, GNA - Residents of Busunya in the Nkoranza District of Brong Ahafo have decided to construct a permanent Police Station in place of a rented premises as the present facility is at the verge of collapse.

Mr. Emmanuel Opoku-Wiafe, Community Project Implementation Committee Chairman told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) at Busunya on Tuesday that the Management of the Fiagya Rural Bank in the area had presented 100 bags of cement to support the people on the project. Mr. Opoku-Wiafe said the people had managed to mould 2,800 blocks with the cement towards the start of the project.

He announced that the Police Station would go a long way to promote the development of the area, as the personnel would help combat crime and ensure the security of the people and their property.

Mr. Opoku-Wiafe also said the area contained a number of settler farmers of different ethnic groups and the Police would help to maintain law and order among them.
