The Ghana Police Service has unveiled its plans to boost security at the residence of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo before and during the November 7 general election.
This package forms part of security arrangements being put in place to ensure the safety of the NPP leader and his household.
Public Relations Officer of the Ghana Police Service, Superintendent Cephas Arthur revealed this to Adom News Sunday.
