President Akufo-Addo was initially scheduled to visit the Burma Camp on Wednesday, February 13 but the visit was postponed.

He stated that “one of my first acts as President was to increase the United Nations Peacekeeping Troops contribution allowances from $30 to $35 per soldier per day. We also cleared the outstanding arrears of $13 million for all peacekeeping personnel, and ensured that the contingents in the Gambia were paid all their allowances in full,” he said.
