In his speech, Mr. Foli while thanking the almighty God and people he met through the ranks, also appealed to the government to lift the ban on the importation of rice through the Eastern frontiers.

“I wish to take this opportunity to appeal to the Honorable Regional Minister and the Commissioner of Customs to have a second look at the ban on the importation of rice through the Eastern frontiers, since the ban on the Western frontiers has been partially lifted. I suggest same be done for Ho and Aflao collection points to reduce the smuggling of the commodity,” Mr. Foli said.

Mr. Samuel Komla Foli also advised the officers to work diligently so they could be entrusted with greater responsibilities.
