A total of six newly trained Municipal Guards of the Adentan Municipal Assembly have passed out of training in a ceremony held on at the forecourt of the Municipal Assembly.
In his keynote address at the passing out ceremony, the Municipal Chief Executive of the Adentan Municipal Assembly, Mr Alexander Nii-Noi Adumuah reminded the incoming Municipal Guards of the arduousness of the career they had chosen to pursue. He stated that: “Your task as Municipal Guards is an arduous one which requires a high level of dynamism, client focus and discipline.”
The MCE noted that the guards were joining the Assembly at a time when there were a lot of issues concerning unauthorized developments, buildings in roads, road crossings at unauthorized places, recalcitrant rate payers and so on and charged them to desist from all forms of negative conducts such as extortion and bribery which tend to adversely affect the Assembly’s image.
The Divisional Commander of the Adentan police division, ACP Joseph Owusu Bempah, the special guest of honour at the ceremony admonished the municipal guards to be fair and firm in the discharge of their day-to-day duties.
He further urged the newly trained guards to uphold the noble tenets of their profession as guards of the municipality and work with a high standard of discipline and professionalism to up-lift the image of the Adentan Municipal Assembly to greater heights.
The Security Guards had undergone five weeks intensive training in traffic directing, road crossing activities, rendering aggregate security for staff and properties of the assembly as well as enforcement of the Assembly’s bye -laws.
The certificate of honour for the ‘Overall Best Recruit’ went to Abugri Azumah Malik.
The MCE of Adentan, Mr Alexander Adumuah wished the new Municipal Guards a successful career in the Local Government Service.
