He also touched on the several provisions his administration has made for the Ghana Police Service including the 320 vehicles which have already been provided and an addition of about 273 which is yet to be delivered.

Reacting to the issue of promotions in the Ghana Police Service, President Akufo-Addo emphasized that the issue of police officers having to wait for more than the mandated number of years before their promotions are due has been dealt with.

“Under this administration, the era where an officer stays without being promoted for more than the mandated four years is over,” the president noted.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo was speaking at the West Africa Security Service Association (WASSA) of the Ghana Police Service on Friday, March 22.
