Private legal practitioner, Managing Partner at Trent Legal Amansie Chambers and an indigene of Bekwai, Ashanti Region, Ralph Poku-Adusei, has donated two motorbikes to the Police command in the Bekwai Constituency.

The astute lawyer, during a recent familiarization tour of the Bekwai Constituency, made a stopover at the Police command. In his interaction with the command, it came to the fore that the constituency has a logistical deficit when it comes to mobility options. 

Commissioned bikes

On the 15 August 2022, President Akufo-Addo, commissioned some 1,500 motorcycles at the forecourt of the Police Headquarters, noting that his administration will not relent in its efforts to provide adequate resources to the Police to enhance their work output.

However, the Bekwai Police command is yet to receive a part of the commissioned motorbikes.

The intervention of Ralph Poku-Adusei, therefore comes in handy to support the efforts of the Police in Bekwai before, during and after the Christmas festivities.

State of Bekwai Police

The Bekwai District has a total of seven Police Stations.

They are located at Senfi, Anwiankwanta, Ahwiaa, Essumeja, Abodom, Kokofu and Bekwai. Inspite of this level of Police presence, residents of the Bekwai District have endured recent highway robberies and pockets of insecurity.

This has largely been attributed to the lack of transportation logistics to enable Police in the Bekwai District respond rapidly to distress calls and complaints.

The only pick-up truck allocated to the Bekwai Police command has broken down for several years. The constituency currently can boast of one Toyota Camry vehicle that it uses for its patrol duties.

Presentation

At the presentation ceremony, Ralph Poku-Adusei, noted that he was compelled to assist the Police right away after his visit because as the yuletide approaches, the security of market women, traders, and customers had to be prioritised.

“The Police are a very important establishment in our country and they deserve the support of every one of us to do their work in keeping us safe.

“I consider this presentation a community duty and I look forward to doing much more for the Police command in Bekwai and all other institutions that provide critical support to the district.     

“Maintenance they say is not really a culture that is upheld in our country. However, I urge the Police command to do everything possible to undertake regular maintenance of the motorbikes in order to have them in service for a long time,” the learned lawyer added.
