0

The Ghana Army 64th Infantry Regiment has inaugurated a 100 bed accommodation for its young soldiers at Gondar Barracks in Burma Camp, Accra.

The 100-bed facility, named after former senior warrant officer, Freedom Alormesor, will help alleviate the accommodation problems the regiment faces as it does not have barracks.

Speaking at the ceremony, the Chief of the Army Staff (COAS), Major General Oppong-Peprah, said efforts were being made to acquire more logistics and infrastructure to boost regimental operations.

Regarding infrastructure development, he said the army was right to mention that tents in Bundasi camp had been turned into building blocks, adding that “Bundasi is becoming a small town.”

“We expect 70 husky vehicles in August and we also expect more vehicles at the end of the year,” he added.

The commander of the 64th Infantry Regiment, Lt. Col. Frank Agyeman, said 70 percent of his troops lived outside the barracks, making it difficult to mobilize and deploy troops quickly.

“The regiment does not have its own barracks but with the support of the higher command, we are gradually bringing our soldiers who live in town into the barracks like any other unit in the Ghanaian army,” he said. .

Former Senior Warrant Officer Alormesor appreciated the regiment for the honor bestowed upon it and urged the young soldiers to work hard.
