Just like his predecessors, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo since resuming office has made it his target to deliver on every promise he made in the run-up to the general elections to the beloved people of this country. You can bare with me that even though, there is a lot to be done, he has fulfilled most of the promises.
The President hinted during the graduation ceremony of the 50th Cadet Officers' Course in Accra that there will be a delivery of three helicopters to the Ghana Police Service (GPS) in November this year. This is what he promised the GPS in his 2018 State of the Nation's Address (SONA) and he has delivered. The president stated that the hangars for these helicopters which is located at the National Police Training School have also been completed. He added that the personnel or officers (6) to operate these helicopters have also finished their training in South Africa.
The current administration has done a lot to assist the police unit to combat crimes. Since 2017, the government has delivered 568 vehicles including 15 buses to the police service. In addition to this, 200 motorbikes have also been given to the members of the Community Policing Initiative and a number of fragmentation jackets have also been delivered to the Police Service. The president urged the general public to assist the police and other security services in the country in fighting crime.
The helicopters which is yet to be delivered is made up of two gazelle light attack helicopters and one Airbus 350 helicopter. Let's hope these helicopters would be put to good use and help the police unit to eradicate crime from the society.
Would these helicopters help in fighting criminals in the country? Share your thoughts with us by leaving all your comments below.
