Ms Darling Norgbey, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) has appealed to women across the country to use their endearing attributes to help diffuse simmering political tensions that could develop into full blown conflicts.
Ms Norgbey, who is President of Police Ladies Association (POLAS), Volta Region, was addressing members of the Association and other security services ladies after a march on Saturday through the Ho Township to herald peaceful elections in the region.
She said the peace message should be taken home, shared and propagated, among family and friends adding that POLAS was adding its voice to the call for peaceful elections coming from across the country.
Ms Norgbey said POLAS was throwing its support behind “police and other sister security agencies to put in place elaborate plans to ensure the integrity of the electioneering process”.
“As women, the call for peace is very relevant because should the peace and tranquillity that we enjoy be curtailed as a result of any unfortunate disturbances, we and our dear children would be the ones to bear the full brunt,” Ms Norgbey stated.
