The Member of Parliament for Agona East, Mrs Queenster Pokuaa Sawyer, has presented three bundles of roofing sheets and 500 Ghana cedis to support the re-roofing of the town’s police station.

Nana Kofi Agyekum, Adontenhene of Nsaba Traditional Area, received the items and expressed the hope that with the donation the Inspector General of Police would rescind his threat to close down the station.

He said chiefs in the area received reports that the IGP had threatened to close down the station due to serious leakage whenever it rained.

The chief said the IGP was unhappy that some dockets and important documents at the Police Station had been soaked by the rains.

He said the chiefs took serious view of the situation and sent “Safe our Soul” (SOS) to the MP.

According to Nana Kofi Agyekum, the MP who is also Deputy Central Regional Minister, responded positively to their request and assured that she would not joke with security matters in the area.

He said the IGP’s intention was to transfer all personnel from the station to another station.

Nana Kofi Agyekum said the chiefs of Nsaba would do their best to rehabilitate the Police Station, adding that the chiefs had procured wooden boards to facilitate the re-roofing of the building.

He thanked the MP for the donation and appealed to banks, non-governmental organizations and other corporate bodies come to aid of the station.

Mr John Yeboah Mensah, the landlord, said the Police Administration owed him 50,000 Ghana cedis as rent from 2008 to 2014.

He said the building had not been painted since 1964 due to delay in the payment of rent.

He therefore appealed to the IGP to help pay the money to enable him to renovate the building.
