NIC equips Airport police with safety gears

The National Insurance Commission (NIC) has presented quantities of reflector vests, hand gloves and body bags for the Airport Divisional Command of the Ghana Police Service to protect the personnel in their traffic duties. The items comprising 100 reflector vests, 100 body bags and 1000 pairs of hand gloves was to aid the officials of the Airport Motor Traffic and Transport Department in their traffic duties.

Presenting the items to the Airport Divisional Command in Accra on Friday, the Commissioner of Insurance, Professor Dr Justice Ofori, advised motorists to be patient on the road to reduce road crashes in the country. “When drivers are careful on the roads, there would be a more significant reduction in the number of accidents to save lives as “every life matters,” he stated.

The Commissioner of Insurance pledged the Commission’s continuous support to the Police to enable the latter execute its road traffic duties efficiently. “As stakeholders, the Police and the NIC can only work together to help minimise the canker and also to ensure that adequate compensations are paid to affected victims through valid insurance claims,” the Commissioner said.

Prof. Dr. Ofori used the opportunity to commend the leadership of the Ghana Police Service for ensuring that the Motor Insurance Database (MID) was successful.

Receiving the items on behalf of the Airport Divisional MITD, Chief Superintendent John Atanga said he was impressed with the introduction of the MID, an electronic system for checking fake insurance stickers.
