Gifty, who is responsible for administration and finance at the NSS and manages an annual personnel pool of about 100 000, has taken to social media to celebrate her academic milestone.
Celebrating her accomplishment online, Gifty wrote:
''Another one bagged, and gradually, we are inching towards the mark. It has never promised to be an easy path, but we relentlessly walk in silence. Today, I walked home with a Master of Science in Defence and International Politics from the Ghana Armed Forces Command and Staff College.
For God, country and my son.''
