The President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, on Wednesday, December 2, 2020 commissioned the newly modern District headquarters at Bohyen in Bantema constituency of the Ashanti Region.
The commissioned was part of his final three day tour to end the Campaign in Ashanti Region.
The building, which constructed by Mr Asenso Boakye, the NPP parliamentary Candidate for Bantema will serve the peoples of Bohyen and its environs.
Delivering his remarks at the commissioning, President Akufo-Addo noted that the issue of law and order is particularly important at this time, when indiscipline, lawlessness and outbreaks of mob justice are threatening the rule of law, and, therefore, vital that the Executive should offer its full support to the Police to allow it to perform its duty of maintaining law and order.
“Government continues to mobilise whatever assistance it can to enable the Police provide the Ghanaian people the kind of service they deserve. This year, we are undertaking the rehabilitation of police stations throughout the country to standardize the infrastructure,” the President said.
He continued, “Our aim is to strengthen the Police, fashioning it into an honest, disciplined, efficient and robust force, whose emphasis will be on proactive and preventive policing, rather than reactive”.
It was the hope and expectation that the Police which will deploy to Bohyen will enhance their engagement with the communities they serve, because that is a more sustainable way of reducing crime.
“Residents must also co-operate with the Police, and give them maximum backing in the discharge of their duties. When the community and police work together, we can be assured of our safety and security, and, then, we can channel all our energies and resources into building a progressive and prosperous nation,” President Akufo-Addo added.
Ashanti Regional Police Commander, COP Kwasi Mensah Duku pledged to maintain the building and also work effectively to combat criminal activities in the district
Chief of Bohyen Nana Kwadwo Antwi Bosiako thanks the president and the deputy chief of staff Mr Asenso Boakye for the edifice and urge the people of Bohyen to be disciplined so that they will not get into trouble.
