GHANAIANS URGED TO CO-OPERATE WITH COUNTRY’S MILITARY FOR LAW AND ORDER

ACCRA, Ghana’s Defence minister, Dominic Nitiwul, has urged members of the public and law enforcement agencies to co-operate with the military to promote peace, law and order in the country.

He noted that there were a lot of illegalities such as smuggling, illegal chain saw operations and mining going on in the country, which the military alone could not prevent without the co-operation of all Ghanaians.

Nitiwul made the call at a meeting with officers and personnel of the Ghana Army at the Third Garrison in Sunyani, about 370 kilometres northwest of here, as part of his one-day working visit to the garrison to know the prevailing challenges and also the security situation in the region.

He expressed satisfaction that the operations of the military in the fight against “galamsey” (illegal mining) had been very successful and would significantly save the nation’s environment from further degradation.

Nitiwul commended the military for their role and comportment in the government’s effort to prevent and prohibit galamsey operations without any negative incidence and urged them to collaborate with other security agencies to ensure that the country’s boarders are totally safe and secured against activities that could disturb national peace.
