Promote our husbands quickly - Police wives appeal to IGP

By Kwabena Owusu-Ampratwum

The Brong Ahafo Branch of the Police Wives Association, POLWA, has appealed to the IGP and the Police Administration to promote their husbands at the right time to motivate and inspire them to work with greater commitment.

According to the POLWA the delays in the promotion sometimes depress their husbands, a situation which does not help the cause of dedicated service delivery in the interest of the nation.

Regional President, Veronica Twumasi, made the appeal at a durbar to mark the 30th Anniversary Celebration of the Association in Sunyani.

She said promotions to deserved personnel in the Service in due time would inure to the benefit of the nation because besides the resultant increased remuneration, they would derive the necessary psychological satisfaction as a motivational factor to work even better.

Madam Twumasi expressed regret at the deplorable state of some of the Police barracks and appealed to the Government to adequately resource the Service to undertake massive renovation of those barracks in addition to increasing the stock with new and befitting building facilities.
