President Akufo-Addo has today, Wednesday, 1st February 2023, commissioned a newly constructed 300 Bed capacity Joseph Siaw Agyepong Young Soldiers’ Block at the 37 Military Hospital.
The facility he noted forms part of the government’s effort towards addressing the accommodation deficit of the Armed Forces.
He said the new accommodation will accommodate newly posted young soldiers to commence their basic training in medical care.
He described the day as quite an eventful day for him as President of the Republic and Commander-in-Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces.
He also handed over the UN Level IV COVID-19 Field Hospital located near the Air Force Base, Accra, to the military High Command.
He later familiarised himself with the operations of DIKMAC Ltd, which is an armoured vehicle assembly plant located in Burma Camp, and also handed over a fleet of vehicles (175 in total) to the Headquarters 15 Armoured Brigade.
Commissioning the ultra-modern CDS office complex was one of the highlights of the day, for it is an edifice befitting the CDS and his staff, he stated
He also cut the sod for the construction of a General Headquarters Office Complex for GHQ, and also for the construction of two thousand (2,000) housing units for the Navy.
