Fire Officers Money Returned

Monies wrongly collected from fire officers in the Brong Ahafo Region towards the official visit of the Chief Fire officer, Albert Brown Gaise have been returned to them.

Consequently, a three-member committee has been constituted to investigate the matter and recommend appropriate disciplinary action according to service enquiry regulations, DAILY GUIDE has learnt.

The Chief Fire Officer (CFO), who is in the Brong Ahafo Region as part of his duty tour to familiarize himself with the operations of the service after six regional tours since assuming office, did not take kindly to the publication.

According to the Public Relation Officer (PRO) of the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS), Prince Billey Anaglatey, the Chief Fire Officer’s tours had been fully catered for by the administration.

Briefing DAILY GUIDE on the issue, Mr. Anaglatey said the ‘visit is at no cost to the region, if there is anything like that it is illegal and contrary to service regulations.

The members of the committee include Deputy Chief Fire officer (DCFO) Maxwell Owusu Brempon-Director of Accounts, DCFO Winni Azomyann- Director of Finance and Administration and the Public Relations Officer (PRO), Prince Anaglate.

They are to submit their findings by Friday to the CFO in Accra.

The CFO has accordingly directed that the said dinner should be cancelled with immediate effect.

Meanwhile, further investigations by DAILY GUIDE indicate that though officers in the region were levied GHC20, it was not sanctioned by the command.

Personnel decided to make contributions to show appreciation to their boss.

According to the PRO, when personnel in the region made the suggestion, it got to the notice of CFO in Accra informally who directed that it should be stopped.

The PRO said that the CFO had called for a comprehensive report on the issue and the regional commander given a service enquiry.

The CFO is accompanied on the trip by the Director of Safety- Michael Yavquah, Director of Finance, Winnie Azoymyann, Director of Logistic, Edward Kwaku Ashon, the PRO and other senior officers of the service.

They would meet stakeholders in the region and discuss how best to control fire outbreaks in the region.
