NPP National Organizer, Sammy Awuku has commended President Akufo-Addo for supporting the security services to curb crimes in the country.

He believed with what the President has done for the security services, the responsibility now lies on their shoulders to complement what government has done.

According to him, the government has enhanced their conditions, logistics and strengthened the laws to support them to overpower criminals in the nation.

“Crime on daily basis is taken a new form but most importantly , the current Police administration is also determined in developing ways and means to help combat the crimes, even though they cannot be perfect but we cannot ridicule them to run them down as if they have not done anything,” he said on the Peace FM's "Kokrokoo" during a panel discussion with host Kwami Sefa Kayi.

The more the government put in place strategies to combat it, crime is also on daily basis taking different dimensions", he also narrated.
