The Headquarters of the Central Command of the Ghana Armed forces has cut the sod for the commencement of 10-bedroom self-contained buildings complex to address the accommodation challenges of its personnel.
Brigadier -General Joseph Aduku Aphour, Officer Commanding, observed that the barracks was the nerve centre as far as security in its operational areas and regions are concerned, hence, the need to keep soldiers accommodated.
He disclosed that because of lack of accommodation, most of the soldiers were living out of the barracks, with those living in the barracks also haing challenges.
According to him, though the government had plans to provide the needed accommodation in the long term, he deemed it fit to take immediate steps to address the issue, hence, the Command was initiating the construction of the 10-bedroom self-contained accommodation project, which might eventually be expanded to 20-bedroom capacity.
Mr. Osei Asibey Antwi, Chief Executive of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA), commended the Military Command for the laudable initiative, which, he said, would go a long way to help the soldiers have befitting accommodation.
He assured the military that his outfit (KMA) would ensure that the project was completed on time by providing the necessary support.
