The police have tightened security at the private residence of the President-elect, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

They took over security at the house located at Nima hours before the in-coming president was declared winner of the 2016 presidential polls amidst the erection of metal barricades at strategic positions.

The house is located a few meters from the Nima junction traffic light and only separated by the road with the Nima police station from where a group of NDC youth recently attacked the residence with bottles and stones.

Personnel from the police Motor Traffic and Transport Department (MTTD) have since been detailed to control the traffic situation.

Ever since the man got elected as President, the access road in front of his house has been blocked with metal barricades, with no access for vehicles plying the route except those going to the house.

A group of taxi drivers who used to operate right opposite the house has since been relocated while the pavement by the house has equally been taken over by the police with a Formed Police Unit (FPU) stationed behind the house 24/7.

With the house suddenly becoming the centre of attraction considering the number of visitors that troop in everyday to congratulate the President-elect, visitors are taken through rigorous body screening before allowed entry.

Heads of the various security agencies including the Chief of Defense Staff (CDS), Air Marshal Samson Oje, Inspector General of Police (IGP), John Kudalor and other service commanders have all been to the house to pledge their loyalty to the incoming President.

Other persons including chiefs and party people from all walks of life have also been trooping to the house to congratulate Nana Akufo-Addo, resulting in the mounting of additional canopies and chairs to provide some level of comfort for visitors.

But even before he is sworn in as President of the Republic, Mr. Akufo-Addo has started enjoying the comfort and privilege that comes with his office with a team of police guards for his protection and police outriders [dispatch riders] detailed for his convoy.
