The Ashanti Regional Minister, Hon. Simon Osei-Mensah, is continuing his press conference series to highlight the government’s accomplishments in the Ashanti Region across all economic sectors.

This time, he revealed the work the Akufo-Addo administration accomplished in the security and judiciary sectors between January 2017 and December 2023.

According to the Regional Minister, the administration of President Akufo-Addo has demonstrated remarkable performance in the security and judiciary domains between 2017 and December 2023.

In his speech, he asserted that since the government took office, the security of the Region has been peaceful and composed and that the security agencies should be given the honor.

According to Hon. Osei-Mensah, fights against Fulani herdsmen in the Asante Akyem Agogo Constituency, highway robberies, kidnapping, illegal mining, and illegal tree logging were some of the main issues he faced when the President appointed him as the Regional Minister.

He confirmed that thanks to the assistance of the security agencies, the aforementioned hardships are now history.

“I have always said I’m the luckiest Regional Minister- ever since I was appointed the Minister of the Region, the Regional Security Council has supported me with a yeoman’s job,” he said

The Ashanti Regional Minister disclosed that the Akufo-Addo government from 2017 to December 2023 has handed over 181 vehicles including, Armored personnel Carriers (APC), Pick-ups, and 384 motorbikes to the various security agencies in the Region.

Hon. Osei-Mensah said the government has recruited 5108 personnel into the Police Service, Ghana National Fire Service, Customs and Prison Service from 2017 to December 2023 in the Region.
