Ghana is really making waves in every field, though we may have challenges that wouldn't deter us from giving our best.
Her Excellency (HE) Stephanie Sullivan:
“I never could have guessed how far this training facility would have come since my last visit. I’m very impressed”.
She also took the opportunity to unveil and outdoor a new 40-kilometer radius capability communication network for the Bundase Training Center (BTC).
Ambassador Sullivan continued; “Believe it or not, I had the honour of visiting BTC during my previous assignment in Ghana over 20 years ago, I must say, things have changed; and changed for the better. This outdooring today is proof of that change”
During the tour Ambassador Sullivan presented $300,000-worth state-of-the-art Motorola communication network package, funded through the U.S. Department of State and the Global Peace Operations Initiative (GPOI) program, the ceremony had the Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) of GAF – Major General (Maj Gen) Thomas Oppong-Peprah, as the Guest of Honour.
The BTC, with a vision of transitioning into a regional training centre of excellence, hence undergoing a massive facelift, had been in dire need of standard facilities, as GAF personnel undergoing periodic pre-deployment training, made do with makeshift tents and camp beds for accommodations, amongst many deficiencies.
Now, the camp has some modern accommodation and an almost completed modern auditorium, with a conference room.
Prior to the installation of the new network, the camp was equipped with one which could only cover a range of 12-kilometers radius, with challenges, however, after the new installation, it can now operate 25-kilometers radius of the 40-kilometer capacity, with 10 repeaters and 100 handsets.
Present at the program included the Director-General, International Peace Support Operations (IPSO) – Brigadier General (Brig Gen) Kwesi Mends, the Commander, Support Services Brigade Group – Brig Gen Matthew Essien, the Chief Staff Officer (CSO), Ghana Army – Brig Gen Agyemang-Prempeh, the Director of Army Peacekeeping Operations – Colonel Joseph Amanor and the Director, Communications.
