In a unique way to demonstrate his gratitude to the Western Regional Police Command for their hard work, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Effia, near Takoradi, Joseph Cudjoe, on Tuesday presented 10 desktop computers and their accessories to the Command, to enhance their operations.
At a brief ceremony to hand over the computers to the Regional Police Command, the Effia MP disclosed that the region is dear to him and the police needed to be commended for maintaining law and order in the area.
He indicated that when oil was discovered in commercial quantity in the region, many were those who feared that security in the region could be jeopardised.
‘People were expecting that the crime rates in the region would go up. There were those who thought the police in the region would be stunned with oil-related crime cases,’ he asserted.
He mentioned that the police in the region, however, needed to be praised for the manner in which they have been able to professionally control crime to an appreciable level.
‘In fact, the police in the region are doing very well and so I deemed it fit to support them with ten computers and their accessories, to begin with, to enhance their activities,’ Mr Cudjoe added.
He urged the police personnel to continue exhibiting professionalism at all times to enable them to enjoy cooperation from the public.
The Western Regional Police Commander, DCOP Isaac Alex Quainoo, who received the items, expressed his gratitude to the MP and urged corporate institutions to learn from the kind gesture and help the Service.
He mentioned that the items had come at an opportune time as most of the district offices and other department under the regional command did not have computers to work with.
He, therefore, indicated that the items would be distributed to some of the districts office of the regional command that needed them badly.
The MP for Effia had earlier presented some of the computers and their accessories to about 11 schools in his constituency to enhance teaching and learning of information and communication technology (ICT) in the schools.
The schools were also presented with exercise books embossed with the photograph of the MP.
The beneficiary schools included Effia Methodist Junior High School (JHS), Nana Brempong Yaw JHS, Rev Cobbah Yalley JHS, Alahzharriya Islamic School and Good Shepherd JHS.
The rest were Tanokrom JHS A & B, Grant Basic School, Lagos Town STMA, Ahmadiya JHS and Dunwell JHS.
Teachers of the beneficiary schools were grateful to the MP for the gesture and promised to use the items for the purposes for which they were donated.
