The items, which were Dr Dampare's personal donation, was in response to a request made by the Headmistress of the school, Mrs Precious Godonu, during the IGP's three-day working tour in the Oti Region where he interacted with the staff and pupils of the school.

The Kete-Krachi Divisional Police Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Mr Alex Wowolo, presented the items on behalf of Dr Dampare.

ACP Wowolo said Dr Dampare responded quickly to their request because the items would help enhance the study of ICT which was very crucial in the life of every student.   

The Director of the Transport Unit of the Ghana Police Service, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), Mr Peter Okyere, impressed on the staff and pupils of the school to ensure that the devices were properly maintained.

Staff Officer of the Oti Regional Police Command, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Mr John Nchor, advised the schoolchildren to make a statement for the confidence reposed in them by the IGP through the donation by making the school a centre for educational excellence in the region.

The headmistress of the school, who received the items on behalf of the school, expressed her gratitude to the IGP for the kind gesture and the swift response he attached to her request.

The Chairman of the School’s Management Committee, Mr David Oduro, on behalf of the chief and the people of Monkra expressed their appreciation to the IGP.
