Coming after the heels of the recent outdooring of an ultra-modern Central Auditorium, as part of the ongoing transformation of the Bundase Training Camp (BTC) of the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) into a modern peacekeeping training camp, three buildings to accommodate 250 persons, have been constructed, fully furnished and commissioned.
The commissioning took place on Thursday, April 15, 2021, at the camp with the Chief of Air Staff (CAS) – Air Vice Marshal (AVM) Frank Hanson as the Guest-of-Honour.
The accommodation facilities – two 100-bed and one 50-bed, were sponsored by M&C PROPERTIES, C&G ALASKA and GULF ENERGY and LEGON CITIES FOOTBALL CLUB, respectively, while PROLICOM PLUS LTD and STRUCTURES & LOGISTICS, had earlier on, fully funded and constructed the OPPONG-PEPRAH BLOCK, which also is a 50-bed facility.
These completed buildings, with beds provided by the Logistics Department of GAF, and others ongoing, form the first phase of the expansion program of BTC, as GAF strives to make the Camp a modern peace operations training institution of excellence.
Present at the inauguration were dignitaries, which included the Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) – Major General Thomas Oppong-Peprah, the General Officer Commanding (GOC), Southern Command – Brigadier General (Brig Gen) Michael Amoah Ayisi, the Commander, Support Services Brigade Group – Brig Gen Matthew Essien, the Director General, Logistics – Brig Gen Prince Osei-Owusu and the Chief Staff Officer (CSO) Army – Brig Gen Agyemang-Prempeh.
