The MCE for Oforikrom, Hon. Abraham Antwi has hinted that the constructed but yet-to-be commissioned police station at Oduom/Anwomaso junction would soon be opened to the general public.
He noted that attempts to operationalize the edifice which was completed some years ago have met a lot of challenges. Unfortunately, he added that it turned into a hiding place for criminals and lunatics who vandalized the place.
However, with support from his able team shortly after his assumption of duty as MCE has been able to source funds from the stool lands secretariat to renovate the block.
According to the MCE, after several meetings and consultations with the traditional rulers of the area and the Municipal Security Committee (MUSEC), they have agreed to open the block despite the litigation on the project and to use the actual name cited in the project document until the litigation is resolved.
Hon Antwi made these revelations when he delivered his sessional address during the First Ordinary General Assembly Meeting of the Third Session of the Second Assembly on 28th June 2022 at the Banisvila Conference Hall.
He indicated that to improve police visibility with the aim of protecting the citizenry, the assembly has commenced assessment of uncompleted police station blocks with the intention of completing them in the near future. He added that the M.P. Hon. Dr. Emmanuel Marfo is on course to complete the accommodation facility for officers at Appiadu.
The MCE was happy to announce that, the assembly’s quest to clear all cars unlawfully parked along the streets within the jurisdiction is becoming a reality as the B’ District Police Command has given approval to the Assembly to use a portion of the Oforikrom Police Station yard as a parking place for towed vehicles.
‘Fortunately for us, Nana Semanhyia has agreed to provide a towing car for the exercise which is currently parked at his premises. Once the green light is given, the exercise would be piloted and a formal agreement would be signed for a full scale operation’
