An ATV is a small open motorised vehicle with four large wheels used to cruise over rough terrains, also known as quad bikes.
The Volta Regional GIS Commander, Deputy Commissioner of Immigration (DCI) Peter Claver Nantuo expressed gratitude for the support from the government and gave the assurance that the ATVs would be used only for their stipulated purpose.
Present at the event were GIS commanders from the Nyive, Akanu, Aflao, Leklebi-Dafor and the Nkwanta sectors of GIS.
Mr John Nelson Akorli, Ho Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), who performed the ceremony, said that the government placed a high premium on the GIS because they are vital to the security needs of the people.
Mr Akorli added that government is committed to providing employment in various sectors and also equipping workers with the needed tools.
The MCE said that the recent media highlight on the incidence of kidnapping in the country had made it imperative for government to respond appropriately.
