“There is the need to scale-up our operation due to the inflow of people and vehicles emanating from the yuletide,” he said.

Speaking in an interview on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem, Tuesday, ACP Fosu Ackah said personnel have effectively begun work on the road.

“The traffic situation in the festive season called for the launch of the Inspector-General of Police’s Operation Father Christmas to help us monitor and handle traffic effectively. MTTD personnel now stay on the road and close around 10:pm just to ensure the traffic subsides,” he said.
