The Director-General of Prisons (DGP), Mr Patrick Darko Missah, has charged personnel of the Ghana Prisons Service to act professionally in the discharge of their duties during the December 7 general elections.
The DGP was speaking at a durbar with a cross-section of prisons officers drawn from Accra and Nsawam at the Cantonments, Accra.
Mr Darko Amissah commended the personnel for their impressive performance in policing previous elections and urged them to continue in the same spirit come December 2020.
The Director-General acknowledged the efforts of officers in helping fight the COVID-19 pandemic and cautioned them not to let their guard down in order to prevent a second wave, as has been witnessed in other countries.
Mr Darko Missah also assured the personnel that those of them who are due for promotions and have gone through the requisite procedure successfully, should keep their fingers crossed for the good news.
Present at the durbar were the Deputy Director-General of Prisons in charge of Finance and Administration, Mrs Josephine Fredua Agyeman; Director of Prisons in charge of Operations and Welfare Isaac Egyir, Director of Prisons in charge of Technical and Services Nelson Duut and the Acting Director of Prisons responsible for Health, Mrs Patience Baffoe Bonnie.
The rest include the Commandant of the Prison Officers Training School, DDP. Samuel Agyei Attah and the Eastern Regional Commander and Officer-in-Charge of the Nsawam Medium Security Prison, DDP Ernest Adofo.
