The Ghana Police Service has expressed displeasure after photos of Adom FM staff clad in police uniforms without necessary protocol hit social media.
As the country observes safety protocols amid the outbreak of the coronavirus disease, this year’s Labour Day parade popularly known in Ghana as May Day did not happen as usual.
However, the staff of Adom FM, a subsidiary of the Multimedia Group chose to celebrate workers [frontliners especially] in a special way — by wearing uniforms of the various frontliners in the fight against COVID-19.
In disappointment, the Ghana Police Service took to their Facebook page to condemn the disregard for protocol on the part of the reputable media house. It wrote:
“Adom 106.3 FM a whole media house decides to breach the law in the name of May Day celebration, should this be encouraged? You have breached section 28 of the Police Service Act, 1970 (ACT 350)? It is not easy to merit the Police Uniform, please obey the law at all times.”
It took the chance to educate the public on what to do to merit the wearing of the uniform.
“All that a person/corporate body which wants to use the uniform has to is to officially ask for permission, which is granted in most cases.”
