Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Timothy Yosa Bonga, the Greater-Accra Regional Police Commander, has called on the men and women of the Baatsonaa Divisional Police Command to help maintain peace before, during and after the November 7 polls.
ACP Bonga was speaking at an annual get-together dubbed; ‘WASSA’ organised for the newly established command after a year of hard work.
He, therefore, urged the police to be proud of their work and be committed to it because policing was a good profession.
ACP Bonga congratulated members of the command for maintaining law and order within the jurisdiction and living up to expectation.
Chief Superintendent of Police, Mr Baba Adamu Saani, the Baatsonaa Divisional Police Commander, said the command was carved out of the Kpeshie Divisional Police Command last year which brought forth the Sakomono, Community 18, Okpoi-gonor and Baatsonaa police stations.
He said the command had worked hard to curb crime and helped to keep the peace and expressed the hope that it would be maintained even after the impending election.
The Nima Divisional Police Commander, ACP Nuhu Jango, urged the police to leave a good mark wherever they were posted to and endeavour to strive for excellence.
Dr Asibi Abudu, a former Economist of the Bank of Ghana and the Arabian Bank, who was the Guest of Honour, gave a talk on health and appealed to the gathering to drink a lot of water to ensure healthy living.
He said drinking water immediately after eating must be avoided since it did not enhance digestion.
Dr Abudu, who has written about 18 books on health, advised the people to refrain from drinking iced-water since it shrunk the blood nerves leading to the development of other ailments.
He said eating more fruits was important because it helped to cleanse the gastro-intestinal tract.
“Eating meat and meat products must be avoided as these result in actions that produce nitrogen which makes our armpits and feet to smell. Nitrogen also produces arthritis in the human skeletal joints,” he said and recommended that everyone exercised regularly.
