Disregard Reports Linking GAF To Land Guard Activities

Source The Ghana Report

The Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) has refuted the claim of employing the services of land guards to reclaim its encroached lands.

GAF says the allegation is false and should be treated with the contempt it deserves.

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Tamale North Alhassan Suhuyini had said the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources Chief Director, Professor Patrick Agbesinyale, revealed that a land guard had been contracted to protect state lands.

In a statement signed by GAF Director General of Public Relations Brigadier-General Emmanuel Aggrey-Quashie, the military said: “It is unimaginable that GAF cannot protect its own lands but rather indulge in illegality by relying on the services of land guards, a proscribed activity”.

“GAF deems it as regrettable that news reports emanated from unsubstantiated allegations made by the Chief Director of the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources, Prof Patrick Agbesinyale, at a Parliamentary Committee meeting on 10 July 2023”.

“We wish to stress that this allegation which was repeated by Hon Alhassan Suhuyini, Member of Parliament for Tamale North, to the media is false and should be ignored.”

The Ghana Armed Forces said its “focus is geared towards protecting the frontiers of the country against the downward spread of violent extremism from the Sahel Region “, and the least they expect are issues that would distract them from their core mandate.

It assured the general public of its continuous commitment to ensuring peace and security for the socio-economic development of Ghana.
