The Akwamuhene of Abisim Traditional Council in the Sunyani Municipality of the Bono Region, Nana Oppong Fosuhene has called on the government and the Ghana Police Service to consult the traditional leaders in the country on police recruitment.
According to him, the traditional authorities (Nananom) are the custodians of the land and are the ones who stayed with the people in the various communities hence can identify the good and bad nuts among the people who may be recruited in the service.
He added that Nananom can conduct a proper investigation for the government by visiting the recruited personnel's family to get background information about the person before he or she is recruited into the service.
According to him, the recent attitude and bad records of some police officers are destroying the good image of the service and government.
Nana Fosuhene disclosed this during a day's durbar organized by Save Environment Foundation a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) on Case Tracking System at Abisim.
