It was presented by the Deputy Managing Director, Marketing, Dr Christopher Mensah and the Head of Corporate Affairs of the Tobinco Group of Companies, Mr Albert Kwabena Dwumfour, who also happens to be the President of the Ghana Journalists Association.
Presenting the item to the heads of the police administration, Mr Albert Dwumfour said the Tobinco boss, Mr Nana Amo Tobbin I, has observed that the leadership of the Ghana Police Service has been proactive, vibrant, innovative and as well provided a conducive environment for businessmen, hence the need to support the service.
As part of supporting the police administration, Mr Tobbin also built a fully-furnished and ultra-modern two-storey building worth GH¢3,982,700, to serve as the headquarters of the Police Professional Standards Bureau (PPSB) of the Ghana Police Service.
Last year, at the same time, Tobinco Pharmaceuticals Limited also donated medicines worth GH¢100,000 to the Police Hospital to also mark World Malaria Day.
For his part, DCOP Dr Samuel Otu-Nyarko, who is in charge of public health and also the Deputy Medical Director of the Police Hospital, thanked the Tobinco boss and the company for the largesse.
He prayed to God to enlarge the business of the Group.
He called on corporate entities, organisations and individuals to emulate the philanthropic works of Mr Tobbin to promote national development.
According to him, despite being a Police Hospital, the facility does not only take care of the police but also civilians, adding that more civilians use the ospital, therefore, the need for all to support it.
He was sure of the quality of the medicines from Tobinco Pharmaceuticals Limited and, therefore, assured that they would be kept well and put to good use.
The Deputy Managing Director, Marketing, at Tobinco Pharmaceuticals Limited, Dr Christopher Mensah, also stated that the company will educate the public to achieve zero malaria cases in the country.
In addition to that, he said the company has put in place measures to support some organisations, medical facilities with medicines to help treat and fight malaria.
