  • Description

    THE CHAIRMAN OF GHANA'S RULING NATIONAL LIBERATION COUNCIL, LT. GEN. ANKRAH, HAS WARNED GHANAIANS THAT THE MONTHS AHEAD WILL PUT TO SEVERE TEST THEIR CAPACITY TO EXERCISE THEIR CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY -- BUT WITH THEIR HELP THE N.L.C. WOULD SAFELY PILOT THE STATE INTO A STABLE AND DEMOCRATIC CIVILIAN ADMINISTRATION. GENERAL ANKRAH WAS SPEAKING ON SATURDAY AT THE GRADUATION PARADE OF OFFICERS AT THE TESHIE MILITARY ACADEMY.

    GENERAL ANKRAH URGED THE NEW OFFICERS TO ACQUIRE A HIGH STANDARD OF COMPETENCE AND ABILITY SO THEY COULD COMMAND THE CONFIDENCE, RESPECT AND LOYALTY OF THEIR MEN. HE SAID HE HOPES THAT WHEN THE BAN ON PARTY POLITICS WAS LIFTED, GHANAIANS COULD EXERCISE SUFFICIENT JUDGEMENT AND MATURITY TO AVOID SOME OF THE SERIOUS PITFALLS INHERENT IN POLITICS.

    GENERAL ANKRAH ALSO APPEALED TO EVERYONE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE EXTENDED PERIOD OF REGISTRATION IN SOME AREAS TO REGISTER THEMSELVES AS VOTERS.

    SATURDAY'S GRADUATION PARADE WAS ATTENDED BY A NUMBER OF MEMBERS OF THE DIPLOMATIC CORPS IN GHANA, COMMISSIONERS AND TRIBAL CHIEFS. ELEVEN OFFICERS GRADUATED -- BRINGING TO 518 THE TOTAL OF OFFICERS WHO HAVE TRAINED AT THE ACADEMY SINCE IT WAS OPENED IN 1960.

    A PARADE, FORMED BY SENIOR AND JUNIOR PLATOONS OF THE ACADEMY, WAS INSPECTED BY GENERAL ANKRAH, WHO WAS ACCOMPANIED BY THE GENERAL OFFICER COMMANDING THE GHANA ARMED FORCES, AIR MARSHAL OTU, AND THE COMMANDER OF THE MILITARY ACADEMY, BRIGADIER AFRIFA.

    THE ACADEMIC CANE WAS PRESENTED BY GENERAL ANKRAH TO CADET-SGT. B.A. ATO-KOOMSON; THE MILITARY CANE WENT TO SENIOR UNDER-OFFICER J.S. AMEYBOR, AND THE SWORD OF HONOUR WAS PRESENTED TO JUNIOR UNDER-OFFICER D.K. QUARSHIGAN, THE BEST OFFICER IN THE SENIOR PLATOON.
