Nana Obugyei, who is the Krontihene of the town, said the project wou= ld be ready for occupation by December, this year. He said it was his contribution towards helping to create the right environment to motivate the police to work. Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), Henry Bacho, District Police Commander, said it was a welcoming relief to the personnel of the service= , who are grappling with severe accommodation problem. The two block of houses for the Ejura police was built in 1954 and ha= d since not seen any renovation leading to gaping cracks on the walls, whil= e the roof is leaking badly.

Police Chief Superintendent Edward Oduro Kwateng, Asante-Mampong Divisional Commander, and the Ejura-Sekyedumase District Chief Executive,=

Madam Martha Bruckner, took turns to praise Nana Obugyei for the gesture. They encouraged other public-spirited individuals and groups to emula= te the example. Chief Superintendent Kwarteng used the occasion to appeal to the publ= ic to give information on criminals to help the fight to bring down crime in=

the area.
