GA EAST MUNICIPAL GUARDS GET NEW UNIFORMS
The Ga East Municipal Assembly (GEMA) has procured new sets of uniforms and accompaniments for the Municipal Guards as part of efforts to enhance their work and boost their confidence in the discharge of their duties.
The old Guards since 2012 had not been given new uniforms until now, except the new recruits in 2017.
The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Hon. Elizabeth Kaakie Mann, made it a priority, among others, to procure them new uniforms.
On Wednesday, 21st December, 2022, the much awaited promise was fulfilled as the Municipal Coordinating Director (MCD),Mr. Emmanuel Kwame Kungi, on behalf of the Hon. MCE, presented the new uniforms to the Municipal Guards at a brief ceremony at the premises of the Municipal Assembly at Abokobi.
The items were 67 pieces each of uniforms (shirts and trousers), boots, beret and belts.
The MCD, who was supported by the Deputy Director, Mr. Dey Kukubor, charged the Guards to be disciplined at work at all times and not compromise on their professional ethics.
He thanked them for their patience as it was long overdue in getting them the uniforms.
"You have to be disciplined. The discipline you had in the past bring it back, anybody who cannot fit the disciplinary process should fall out. We thank you for your patience and we urge you to deliver good service", Mr. Kungi remarked.
The Municipal Chief Gaurd (MCG), Chief Inspector Wilfred Baah Gyan, expressed gratitude to the Assembly and noted that the uniforms would go a long way to improve their work.
"The uniforms are good because when the Municipal Guards are neatly dressed it elevates the image of the Assembly because they're the first port of call within the Municipality. It also boosts the moral of the Guards in the execution of their lawful duty", the MCG stated.
"We appreciate the Management of the Assembly especially the Hon. MCE for their concern and their eagerness to resolve our pressing long time need of uniforms", he added.
