DOP Adjei-Attah bows out …after 28 years of servic

The Ghana Prisons Ser­vice (GPS) has organised a pull-out ceremony to officially mark the retirement of the Director of Prisons (DOP) in-charge of Finance, Mr Samu­el Adjei-Attah after 28 years of dedicated service to the prisons service.

As part of the ceremony which took place at the GPS Training School in Accra last Friday, Mr Adjei-Attah was made to stand in an open-top vehicle tied with two pieces of ropes from the front, with only his head and shoulders elevated slightly above the open-top, and gently pulled through a parade of service men to symbolise his exit from the service.

DOP Samuel Adjei-Attah began his career in the GPS on December 5, 1995 when he enlisted as a member of the Officer Cadet Course Intake 13, and was commissioned into the Senior Officers Corps as Assis­tant Superintendent of Prisons with 29 others in June 1996.

He was first posted to Ankaf­ul main camp where he held many positions. In this estab­lishment, he was initially made the Staff Officer to the Central Regional Commander, but later on became the Records/ Reception Officer, Senior Of­ficer-In-Charge of Agriculture and many other portfolios.

After almost eight years of dedicated service in the Ankaful Prions complex, he was trans­ferred to the Medium Security Prison at Nsawam as a Welfare Officer. There, he dealt with a lot of issues pertaining to both officers and inmates.

By dint of hard work, he was promoted to the rank of Direc­tor of Prison on March 1, 2021.

DOP Adjei-Attah indicated that hard work, determination and good character were his major principles during his 28 years of service.

Such principles, he said, propelled him to reach greater heights during his time in the service.

He expressed his heartfelt gratitude to Mr William Asiedu, former Director General of Prisons, for his immense contri­bution to his personal develop­ment and that of the service.

He said the best memory to be given him was for all other officers who he had trained to emulate the good works instilled in them, to make him look back with pride.
