The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has commended the Ghana Police Service for their more proactive public posture in addressing some recent developments which have affected the safety of Ghanaians.
According to the New Patriotic Party's (NPP’s) Director of Communications, Mr Yaw Buaben Asamoa, the Police have recently been engaging the public in real-time and sharing the path of their progress in ongoing investigations which affect the security of citizens.
Citing the Police response to the reported kidnap of a pregnant woman in Takoradi which turned out to be fake, Mr Asamoa urged other public service agencies, especially utilities, to engage swiftly on their challenges that affect service delivery in order to forestall misunderstanding.
"We (The NPP) wish to commend the Police on their more proactive public posture. They are engaging in real-time and sharing the path of their progress. We urge them to sustain this level of communication," Mr Asamoah said at a press briefing on Friday in Accra.
"We also urge other public service agencies, especially utilities, to engage swiftly on their challenges affecting service delivery in order to forestall misunderstanding. Above all, we commend the Police for their swift and dogged investigation of the Takoradi matter and hope that they will bring it to the appropriate conclusion".
He said the party would continue to support the Police "to ensure swift action in incidents of mob destruction of property and physical attack in order to terminate violence as a method of resolution of public grievances".
"The NPP is ready to partner well-meaning citizens to expand spaces for dialogue in the democracy we are building. Sustaining economic growth and social cohesion depends on discipline in exercising our freedoms. Your freedom is guaranteed when you guarantee your neighbours freedom".
