“The commissioning of these medical personnel today is timely, taking into consideration the manpower needs of the ongoing new construction of the military hospital in Kumasi,” he stated.
“The facility is expected to take care of the medical needs of military personnel of the middle and northern sectors of the country. I have no doubt that with the addition of these newly commissioned officers, the Kumasi Military Hospital will have the requisite staff to operate effectively.
“My government will continue to provide the necessary support to ensure the facility is well resourced to augment the several medical facilities in the country. The hospital in Kumasi will also be designated as an emergency hospital to cater for emergency situations in the northern part of Ghana.”
Vice President Bawumia further urged the new cadets to uphold the good name of the Ghana Armed Forces as they go forward into the various stations.
“Safeguard the image and reputation of the Ghana Armed Forces," he said.
