Former BOST CEO donates three Pick-Ups to new region

Police in Bibiani, as well as Sefwi Bekwai and Wiawso in the Western Region, have received a pick-up vehicle each to boost their work.

Former Chief Executive of Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation (BOST) Alfred Obeng Boateng donated the vehicles worth 525,000 cedis.

The gesture is in response to appeal by police for assistance to combat crime in the area.

It comes on the heels of a similar intervention in which Mr. Obeng Boateng gave a 110 kva generator valued at 120,000 cedis to Bibiani Government Hospital.

At a durbar at Sefwi Bekwai, he observed government, basically, is responsible for the development of the country.

Mr. Obeng Boateng, however, noted delayed delivery of projects and services caused by inadequate resources can be fatal.

“There is no doubt that without adequate police protection, the criminals, particularly, the armed robbers will not only take our cash and movable property but also our lives. Therefore, this gesture is for the safety and security of the inhabitants of Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai and Sefwi Wiawso Municipalities,” he emphasized.

The three areas fall within the proposed Western North Region endorsed by a referendum last week.

Mr. Obeng Boateng who played a key role in the process entreats natives, home and abroad, to contribute to developing the area.

“The big question which I usually ask is that if you and I do not help; who else should do it for us, if the need arises?” he quizzed.

Bibiani Divisional Commander, Chief Superintendent John Osei Bonsu, is happy the community is embracing the concept of shared responsibility for crime combat.

He says crime has become so sophisticated more equipment is needed to effectively overcome criminal activities.

Sefwi Wiawso Divisional Commander, Chief Superintendent Francis Ennor, added police need the consistent support of stakeholders to execute their mandate.

Chiefs from the various paramountcies implored the service to ensure proper maintenance of the vehicles for which they pledged fuel.

Meanwhile, Mr. Obeng Boateng announced the acquisition of an old underground mine at Ayiresu and Abofrem for reactivation.

He said the official take-over before the end of January will see the creation of jobs for the teeming youth in the communities.
