The President of the Republic of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has presented 140 vehicles to the Ghana Armed Forces, in fulfilment of a pledge he made to the military last year October.



The President made the presentation today 22nd February, 2019, at Burma Camp, headquarters of the Ghana Armed Forces.

The vehicles include 50 Ankai buses, 40 Toyota Landcruiser Hardbody Vehicles and 50 Toyota Hilux Pickups.


According to the President, an additional 48 vehicles, will be represented to the second tranche of staff and operational vehicles to the Armed Forces.

“This forms parts of my government’s efforts to re-equip and retool the Armed Forces with the needed logistics to enable you to discharge your duties more efficiently and more effectively,” he stated.


He further noted Government’s accomplishment and projects for the Ghana Armed Forces
“We settled the 11.1% of arrears due to the civilian employees, with effect from January 2018, and have ensured a 10% upward salary review for all personnel.”


“The completion of the 3rd Phase of the 37 Military hospital is receiving due attention and we are also focused on completing and commissioning the 500-bed Military Hospital in the Ashanti Region, and beginning the third phase of this project soon.”

The President implored the Armed Forces to maintain their neutrality and professionalism guaranteed under the Constitution.
“Governments have term limits, and in a multi-party democracy, parties win and lose power. It is good for the health of the nation that this is so, and this is why the Armed Forces should not tie its well-being or otherwise to the fortunes of the ruling party of the day,” he said.


The President also called on the media to be circumspect in their reportage on the military, and desist from attributing political motives to matters that are purely professional.
