President Akufo-Addo opens a 300-bed facility for young soldiers at the 37 Military Hospital.
Young soldiers who serve at the hospital and other military health institutions in the Greater Accra Region will be housed in the majestic structure.
At the building’s dedication, President Akufo-Addo said that his administration is dedicated to the health and welfare of Ghanaian Armed Forces soldiers.
The 300-person young soldiers block was established in 2016 to help the 37 military hospitals with their housing needs.
Due to a shortage of funding in 2018, the project that used internally produced finances came to a standstill.
Upon taking office in 2021, Vice Admiral Seth Amoama, the current Chief of Defence Staff, restarted the project.
The CDS requested assistance from the Jospong Group of Companies’ Chief Executive to finish the block.
As part of its commitment to Coperate Social Responsibility, Jospon complied.
According to Joseph Siaw Agyepong, the CEO of Jospon, the firm would keep supporting government organizations in keeping with its aim to improve lives.
With the ongoing improvements in the barracks, Vice Admiral Seth Amoama claimed that the troops are extremely motivated.
President Akufo-Addo reaffirmed the government’s commitment to addressing the Ghana Armed Forces’ housing shortage.
The lodging building bears Joseph Siaw Agyepong’s name, the CEO of Jospong Group.
