Madam Donkor is the only presidential candidate who has applied for this facility, according to a report by ultimate106.9 FM.

The police last month announced plans to provide protection to presidential candidates and their running mates before and during the November 7 general election as part of efforts to ensure that the process is peaceful.

They have, therefore, urged the candidates to apply for the facility so that police officials could be assigned to them.

Police director of public affairs, Superintendent Cephas Arthur, said, according to the report, that all the political parties had accepted the offer but none had applied, except Madam Donkor.

He added that the opportunity to take advantage of the police offer would expire in two weeks.

Last week, Chief Superintendent Benjamin Agordzor, director in charge of operations at the police headquarters, warned political party leaders not to make police officials deployed to protect them perform domestic chores.

“Avoid using them for domestic chores, they will not be sweeping your bedrooms, they will not be fetching water for you. If you decide for one reason or the other that they should stay in your boys’ quarters so that they can protect you very well, we do not have a problem with it, but please do not use them for domestic chores…."
