President Akufo Addo has assured the Ghana Armed Forces (GFA) that his administration will pursue an agenda to give a befitting facelift to all military facilities in Ghana. This includes the construction of a new state of the art infrastructure for the training institute for the Ghana Armed Forces.
Addressing the Ghana Military Academy’s 2018 Graduation Parade for Regular Career Course 58 and Short Service Commission and Special Duties Course 56 at the Adico Square, President Akufo Addo, said since the establishment of the Ghana Military Academy in 1960, the Institute has not witnessed any significant development in its infrastructure.
The president in his address also cautioned the newly Commissioned Officers of the Ghana Armed Forces to be mindful of the fact that their Military Uniforms are not for Intimidating Civilians but it is for their protection and for securing the territorial integrity of the nation.
In all, 139 officers graduated and were commissioned to begin their career in the Ghana Armed Forces. Two (2) allied cadets from the Republic of Guinea also graduated and they will head back to serve in their country.
