Tech World Oil Company has sponsored a 2-million-dalasi police station project for the community of Fula Bantang and its surrounding villages in CRR.
Speaking at the event, Mamour Jobe, the Inspector General of Police, thanked Mr. Touray and his company for the support.
Jobe described himself as the luckiest IGP as far as development is concerned.
He spoke on the importance of policing and having security even in the remotest settlements in the country.
Dodou D. Touray, Operations Manager who laid the foundation stone on Thursday, Tech World Oil Company, said this is a remarkable and overwhelming gesture based on the simple fact that they owe the state some degree of moral duties and responsibilities.
“Tech World Oil Company has decided to build a police station in Fula Bantang and we eye for many more developments in the near future,” he stated.
He said this is a moral duty for all patriotic citizens hence the police cannot do it alone. “It’s paramount obligation for all and sundry to support the national police in their quest to establish a free, safe and egalitarian society for all.
“It is a duty we owe ourselves and the state and of course, part of our corporate social responsibility,” he said.
Alhagie Cherno Lamin Jawo, the Village Alkalo of Fula Bantang, spoke on the importance of the occasion, having a police station in his community for the first time.
“This police station will really benefit us and help in the development of the village and its surrounding villages,” he said.
