A pretty police officer who was discharging her duties in traffic has earned praises for her commitment to her profession.
The unnamed officer defied the heavy downpour to direct traffic and maintain sanity on the road as recorded at Awoshie, a suburb of Accra.
A Ghanaian man who got impressed with her selflessness took a shot of her and posted it in a group on social media to eulogise her.
The man shared; “Admin please approve
A policewoman has been seen passionately directing traffic despite heavy rainfall at Awoshie backyard to make it easy for drivers, in the video she was offered an umbrella but she rejected it, let’s praise her for the good work, ghanapolice #hardwork.”
However mixed reactions trailed the post as some netizens did not see her deeds as extradornidary since she was merely doing her job.
Mckingtorch Makafui Awuku – You can’t hold umbrella and direct traffic. Ghanaians fear rain like we be salt. And it’s as if there is no good and commitment these days so these acts seem extraordinary but it should be normal. At my church I stay in the rain and park cars cos that is the nature of the job
Obaapa Lina Sakyibea – She is doing her job biko. Come to the labor ward and see the kind of things midwives uses their hands to do.
Surgeons and Anesthetists going the extra mile to save lives.
Go to the Rural Areas,
Teachers walk in the mud, some get stuck in the mud with their Motorbikes just to go and teach.
Mo ngyai nhwwhw3anim no🚶♂️
Maloe Nartey – I must commend all the officers who work at Awoshie junction. They’re doing a great job!
Daniel Kpakpo Allotey-Annan – She’s doing a good job; no doubt 👏 ….but if only we could drive a bit more cautiously and considerate in this side of town- Umuofia and apply the “stop sign” right of way rule at cross junctions and intersections, there would be no need for a police to direct traffic in the rain or even when traffic lights are faulty whatsoever!!… some people drive like they’re “mad”!!
Alock Asamoah – God bless you Officer.
There are more of such good officers in our neighborhood. Let’s appreciate them.
Wisdom Boye – There would have been total confusion if she wasn’t there to direct the traffic. Good job. IGP I hope you are seeing the serious people working
Sparkling Pearl – Some of you Ghanaians think your eyes have opened ahh ma. Mtseww. There’s nothing wrong in appreciating people for doing their jobs, especially if they go the extra mile. Come and see how Americans pamper their military, firefighters, etc. But no one asked them to sign up for those jobs abi? But people show their appreciation everyday. There’s nothing wrong with that.
