The MD of the bank also underscored the importance of the Ghana Police in sustaining the country’s development agenda. “The role of law enforcement agencies especially the Ghana Police in our society and in fact our everyday lives cannot be undervalued. Our businesses, our homes and all individuals depend on this institution for their safety and a peaceful coexistence which is a key requirement to achieve sustainable development” he said.
Receiving the keys to the block, IGP Mohhamed Ahmed Alhassan commended adb for responding to its request and urged other corporate bodies to emulate the gesture show by the bank.
