Defence Minister Inspects On-going Military Projects


The Defence Minister, Hon Dominic Nitiwul and his entourage, embarked on an inspection tour of ongoing military projects at Burma Camp and the Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC), formerly Military Academy and Training Schools.
The projects are undertaken by the Chinese Construction Company, Poly Chanda. The Deputy Director of the Directorate of Engineering Services of the Ghana Armed Forces, Lt Col Albert Tekyi, briefed the Minister on progress of work of all the Military projects undertaken by Government to provide accommodation to personnel.
The projects include the construction of the Chief of the Defence Staff’s office complex and Army Headquarters at Burma Camp. The rest are the reconstruction of the Ghana Military Academy, the Demo Lines project at TRADOC, forty-eight four-bedroom housing units for senior officers at Drake Avenue, Airport Residential Area and the Base Ordnance Depot’s relocation project.
Hon Nitiwul expressed great joy on the progress of work and commended the engineers for a job well done. He added that Government has envisioned to do away with all colonial buildings and introduce ultra-modern housing projects to honour service men.
However, he admonished Ghanaians to desist from acquiring lands allocated to the GAF because “it is state property, and that any land acquired by private individuals will be taken back by Government”.
