Alhaji Alidu Fuseini with members of the delegation at the Ministry

A twenty-five member delegation from the Botswana Defence and Staff College has paid a courtesy call on the Minister of Defence, Mark Woyongo, as part of a week’s familiarization tour of the country.

The visit was in line with a Regional Study Module of the College for Geo-Strategic World Tour which sought to study the political, cultural and geographic dynamics of countries in the maintenance of peace and security.

The group, which included staff and students of the college, was briefed on some operations of the Ministry and roles the Ghana Armed Forces had played in protecting territorial integrity and national resources.

Captain Peter Asafo, in a presentation, highlighted encroachment on lands acquired by government to enhance functions of the military as major challenges the institution was faced with.

He stressed the need for the public to check the status of lands they acquire and refrain from settling on restricted government assets.

Touching on the insurgence of tourists groups in neighboring countries, he stated the need for security agencies in Africa to work in unison to help fight the canker.

Alhaji Alidu Fuseini, on behalf of the Minister, was delighted Ghana was chosen as the destination and expressed the need to foster cordial relations with one another in the efforts to promote regional and international security.

Papadi Monnathare, leader of the Botswana delegation, was optimistic the tour would enhance their knowledge of the country with a commitment to offer their expertise where necessary, to help achieve an overall national defence agenda.
