Also at the presentation ceremony was the Madina district police commander, Chief Superintendent Martin Appiah, who expressed his appreciation to Techenomics for the kind gesture.

“We are excited to be in the position to support the police service with some items we believe will assist them in their work as part of our social responsibility. We are appreciative of your efforts in these trying times of the COVID-19,” he said.
Station Officer at the Madina Police Station, Chief Inspector Osei Kwabena, also charged residents and the Ghanaian citizenry to volunteer information to the police to aid in fighting crime especially during this period of the pandemic.
According to him, the public has a role to play by assisting the police in keeping communities safe.
“The doors of the police are always open and so if anyone has any information they should feed it to the police so that we act on it to prevent crime. We are always prepared to follow up on them to fight crime”.
The international lubrication and engineering services company also donated food items and sanitizers to members of the Madina community.
The food items included bags of rice, bread, sardines and cooking oil.
