“The President [Nana Akufo-Addo] announced that due to the lockdown, we need water in some communities without water. He appealed to organizations and individuals to provide free water service. We as the police, we have three water tankers which we feel we can use to help communities. The IGP has asked us to identify areas without water especially those on the outskirts and we are serving them with water,” – he said.
So far, Oyibi, Adamrobe and some communities in the Ga West Municipality have all received water from the Ghana Police.
Supt. Dr. Baba Iddrisu said communities that need money can call the police and request water be provided for them.
