We’re renovating Prisons Service barracks to improve officers’ living conditions’ – Henry Quartey

The Interior Minister, Henry Quartey, has revealed that steps are being taken to renovate the Ghana Prisons Service’s barracks at Osu, which has been in a deplorable state.

Answering questions in Parliament, Quartey told North Tongu lawmaker, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, that a private developer has offered to undertake the renovation works in exchange for portions of the land on which the barracks is situated.

The Minister described the current state of the barracks as “uninhabitable” and said the renovation is long overdue to improve the living conditions of officers residing there.

According to Quartey, the dilapidated state of the barracks has left officers living in great discomfort, and the government is committed to providing a conducive environment for them to carry out their duties effectively.

The renovation project is expected to commence soon, and Quartey assured that the government will ensure that the project is completed on schedule to provide a safe and comfortable living space for the officers.
