Mrs Henrietta Ayison, the Municipal Chief Executive of Agona Nkwanta Municipality, has said the country would continue to enjoy a peaceful and a united society with a credible and professional police service.

She said a credible and professional police service could be achieved if people begin to respect and build confidence in the Police Service.

Mrs Ayison, who said this at the 62nd Independence Anniversary parade held at Agona Nkwanta in the Western Region, called on the police to act professionally so as to earn the trust and confidence of the people they serve.

The ceremony, held under the the theme “Celebrating Peace and Unity”, was attended by traditional authorities, Members of Parliament, heads of department, security agencies and a total of 20 selected schools and three school cadets.

Mrs Ayison said there is the need for Ghanaian to celebrate the strength that comes with the speaking of a united voice, adding that “despite speaking different languages we should learn to overcome our differences to celebrate our rich culture”.

“After 62 years of independence, we all agree that success should be measured by the number of young people who have been able to go to school and have acquired skills and jobs, rather than how many young people that can be sent out to foment violence”.

Mr Ebenezer Kojo Kum, the Member of Parliament for the area, pledged his commitment to the development and growth of the Municipality and called for their cooperation to enable him execute his mandate.

He said there have been improvements in the health, sanitation and education sectors and commended all stakeholders for their support.

Mr Kum said education is important in the development of the country and urged students in the municipality to learn hard to enable them contribute meaningfully to the development of the municipality.

The MP used the occasion to honour a number of brilliant students who excelled in their BECE and WASCE, they were presented with cash, laptops and desktop computers.
