The government will also provide the Army with 30 Otokar Armored Personnel Carriers (APC), and 6 Fast Patrol Boats for the Navy.

He said: “We will continue to modernize and provide the equipment needed by the Military to help them carry out their mandate effectively. Tomorrow, I will be presenting to the Ghana Armed Forces 50 ANKAI Buses, the first tranche of the 138 Staff and Operational Vehicles of various categories, and 26 dispatch motorcycles. This year, we will provide the Army with 30 Otokar Armored Personnel Carriers (APC), and 6 Fast Patrol Boats for the Navy.

“We will also provide improved training facilities by transforming the Military Academy into a World Class Institution, and expand the housing project from six 16 flats to 44, and begin constructing 160 2-bedroom apartments across the country. This year, we will also complete and commission the 500-bed Military Hospital in the Ashanti Region, and begin the third phase of this project”.

President Akufo-Addo also disclosed that the government has fulfilled its promise to the military personnel by increasing the United Nations Peacekeeping Troops contribution allowances from thirty United State Dollars (USD 30.00) to thirty-five United State Dollars (USD35.00) per soldier per day.

“And as promised, we will continue to pay the troops regularly at the operational areas,” he stated.
