From Christopher Wiah, GNN Correspondent In Margibi County|
Members of the Joint Security in Kakata, Margibi County are complaining of the lack of logistical which they noted has hampered the robust enforcement of the COVID-19 Preventive measures.
Speaking in an interview with reporters including a representative of the GNN in the county, Margibi County Assistant Commissioner of Police Sylvester Hena said the lack of mobility is causing a serious setback to the enforcement of all health protocols against the spread of the Coronavirus Pandemic in the County.
Commissioner Hena explained that his officers are finding it very difficult to apprehend individuals who violate health authorities’ mandate against COVID-19 especially vehicle operators.
He further that, individuals only observe the protocols during the day hours adding that they are not equipped to patrol communities in the County during the night and day hours.
In a very fearing tone the Margibi Police Boss stressed that if nothing is done to empower the Joint Security Operations in the county, violation of the health protocols will lead to a major challenge beyond control.
Col. Hena then used the medium to call on business and ordinary citizens in the County to come to their aid in order to have a quick response to violation in the community.
He at the same time urged residents of Kakata to adhere to protocols prescribed by health authorities against the spread of COVID-19.
The Assistant Commissioner of Police re-emphasized the washing of hands, wearing of nose masks, social distancing and avoiding public gathering among others as significant steps to the combating of the virus across the Country.
According to him, if the battle against COVID-19 must be successful in the soonest possible time, it must involve the efforts of everyone in the Country.
