President John Mahama on Thursday during a working visit to the Western Region said the government and the leadership of the GAF are not selling off military lands and properties.

The President also mentioned that there have been ongoing discussions to use Public Private Partnership (PPP) to undertake several projects nationwide and advised the leadership of GAF to coordinate with the Lands Commission to get value for money on their partnership with the private developer.

Lt Col. Serebour (Rtd) speaking for the group in an interview with Citi News said the President’s comments were quite surprising since there is ample evidence to support their claims.

He thus urged the President, who is also the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, to make further enquiries into the issue before making public pronouncements.

The ex-military officer argued that there is cause for grave concern if the President is fully aware of the GAF’s deals with private developers.

“It’s now coming out from the President that what the top hierarchy of the Ghana Armed Forces is doing has the approval of the President and if that is the case, then it is quite unfortunate,” he said.

“The President would have to come back again and we would have to look at the whole issue again,” he added.

According to him, it is not normal practice for the top hierarchy of the Ghana Armed Forces to provide accommodation for troops.

“That is not what some of us came to meet,” he exclaimed, adding that “accommodation for troops is supposed to be provided by the government of Ghana and not under any PPP programme.”
