Brigadier General Sampson Adeti, General Officer Commander of the Southern Command of the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF), says the army is concerned about the possible spillover from the Nigerian terrorist group- Boko Haram.
He said Boko Haram could spread their activities to other countries in West Africa, and Ghana’s security agencies are aware of possible unguarded entry points that the terrorist group could exploit to infiltrate the country.
Speaking to the media during this year’s land combat power demonstration at the Bundase Training Camp on Friday, he said the army is happy there have not been any incidents of Boko Haram in the country.
He said GAF have loyal officers who are ready to fight and defend the country against either a foreign or homegrown threats.
“We reassure the nation of the army’s operational posture, preparedness and readiness to defend and protect the country from any aggression, be it internal and or external,” he said.
Brig Gen Adeti also added that the government has recently supplied modern ammunition to the infantry unit and other military units hence the army’s vigilance to battle the enemies of the state.
“All over the world, personnel of the army are the decisive component of land warfare both in joint and multi-nationals operations.
“The army and the versatility of land combat power remain the ultimate means of imposing a nation’s will and achieving a lasting outcome,” he said.
