The Vice President Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur has given indication that President John Mahama’s administration is committed to ensuring that the Ghana Armed Forces is properly resourced to protect and defend the country.
The Vice President made this known when he met the Armed Forces Council on Wednesday, in Accra. The meeting afforded him the opportunity to meet the Council for the first time since the swearing-in ceremony some weeks ago.
According to him, the Ghana Armed Forces have been described as one of the best in Africa largely due to government’s determination to ensure that standards are upheld.
Mr. Amissah-Arthur expressed satisfaction at the level of commitment and discipline exhibited by the Armed Forces Staff to ensure maximum security in the country over the last 100 days of President Mahama’s administration and urged them to keep up the good work.
He said both domestic and external security remains at the heart of this administration and therefore government will continue to commit investment in that regard to establish the position of the Ghana Army as one of the best in Africa.
