Ministers in the Wa Area of The Church of Pentecost on Friday, July 3, 2020, donated an undisclosed amount towards the purchase of Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) to the Wa Regional Police Command.
Apostle Daniel Nii Tetteh Tackie, the Wa Area Head, indicated that the ministers appreciate the effort of the Regional Police Command in ensuring peace and security in the area and, thus, the gesture was to enable them to protect themselves against the deadly virus in the line of duty.
Pastor Emmanuel Pasteeco Arthur, the Resident Minister of Pentecost International Worship Centre, Wa (PIWC-Wa) made the donation on behalf of the Wa Area pastorate.
Receiving the donation, the Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Francis Aboagye Nyarko expressed gratitude to ministers for the kind gesture.
He used the occasion to brief the delegation from the church on efforts being made by the Regional Police Command which has led to the reduction in robbery activities. Notable among the initiatives are; the consistent gathering of intelligence, provision of escorts at no cost, the abolishment of bureaucracies in securing police escort and strategic police operations to ensure the safety of travellers and traders.
In a hearty discussion, DCOP Aboagye Nyarko stated that he loves the Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye for his humility and continuous support to the Ghana Police Service.
Apostle D.N.T Tackie prayed for God’s protection and blessings for the Police.
Other officials present were the Deputy Superintendent of Police Benjamin Mensah, Staff Officer and Inspector Gideon Ohene Boateng, the Public Relations Officer of Wa Regional Police Command.
The Wa Area pastorate was represented by Pastors Henry Takyi (Area Secretary), Robert Ebo Mensah (Kabanye District), Isaac Tutu (Nandom District), Victor Kyeremeh Gyabaa (Kumbiehe District) and Gordon Ansah (PENSA Travelling Secretary for Upper West Sector).
