President Mahama said “I have approved a recommendation from the military high command and the Armed Forces Council for the introduction of a Ghana government paid leave allowance of 700 US dollars for all ranks on external peace keeping operations.”

He noted that, “I recall my interaction with you at the Burma Hall last month on 11th August, 2016 during my working visit to the Burma camp. A number of issues were raised and as a listening father I have considered them.

 

“I have therefore approved a recommendation from the Military High Command and Armed Forces Council for the introduction of a Ghana government paid leave allowance of 700 US dollars for all ranks on external peacekeeping missions.
