The Guest of Honour for the ceremony, the Vice President of the Republic of Ghana and Chairman of the Armed Forces Council, His Excellency, Dr Alhaji Mahamudu Bawumia, in his address, applauded the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF), on the occasion to celebrate this laudable initiative and its effort in protecting the territorial integrity and the general peace of the country.
He hinted that GAF and all other security services depended mainly on the import of security hardware and equipment for their operations, therefore the joint venture between private entities and GAF presents a beautiful synergy in driving the industrialization of Ghana. He urged more private entities to go into such collaborations with GAF to develop a diversity of production value chains that would benefit all.
