The Ga South Municipal Assembly (GSMA) has allocated GHc122,873.85 from the District Assembly Common Fund (DACF) to renovate the Gbawe Police Post.

He mentioned them to be included Top Base, Gbawe Township, Bulemli, Zero, Telecom Area, Gonse, Sonitra and some part of Anyaa.

He told the Daily Express that together with the Chiefs of Gbawe and some other sub chiefs they have had meetings with the Ga South Municipal Chief Executive, Hon. Jerry Acquaye Thompson over the completion of the project.

“After we had the meetings the MCE has been here to inspect the station. Based on our discussions work is currently going on at the site,” the Assemblyman assured the people of Gbawe Electoral Area.

Hon. Nii Armah Tagoe said the residents are happy to see works going at the Police station within the vicinity.

He mentioned that there is a Police station at Mallam Electoral Area which is serving both Mallam and Gbawe under the Odorkor District Command. He said even though the officers at Mallam station patrol around the Gbawe Electoral Area, the area needed to have it separate station and it officers.
