The Agricultural Development Bank (adb) has handed over a fully renovated and refurbished 12 room syndicate block at a cost GH¢94,000 to the Ghana Police Command and Staff College at Winneba at a short ceremony.
The renovated syndicate block was as a result of a request made by the Ghana Police Command and Staff College for the Agricultural Development Bank to assist in the renovation of the block which had been deteriorated for a long time.
Mr. Stephen Kpordzih is the Managing Director (MD) of adb, he explained that the Bank’s commitment to supporting social causes as it is designed to help add to development in the society. 
“ADB was adjudged the Best Corporate Social Responsible (CSR) Bank at the last Banking Awards and our continuous support for the many social causes such as this is hinged on the fact that we at adb do not only look at the short-run financial returns in our day-to-day operations. We believe that by committing part of our profit to worthy causes such as this will help build a 'feel good' atmosphere among not only members of the communities in which we operate, but also among our workforce who feel proud knowing that they are helping contribute to community empowerment and growth” Mr. Kpordzih said.
“adb's ability to support many social projects also plays a role in building customer loyalty and we would continue to support such causes which will benefit the wider public at large” Mr. Kpordzih added as he handed over the keys to the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohhamed Ahmed Alhassan.
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.
He assured the board, management and staff of the bank that the newly renovated and refurbished syndicate block will be put to good use and properly maintained.
