The nation will soon have a war college, according to plans announced by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
The Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund) will provide seed money for the establishment of the Institution, which is anticipated to be the apex of the country’s military education system.
When it is established, it will provide and enhance professional education for the highest echelons of military leadership.
The announcement was made by President Akufo-Addo on Wednesday at the GAF’s 2022 West African Soldiers Social Activities (WASSA) celebrations at the Burma camp in Accra.
He informed the crowd that he had given the Defence Ministry and the highest military command the responsibility of seeing to it that the War College is operational this year.
The goal of a War College is to educate and develop senior military leaders, strategists, and tacticians. It is a senior military academy.
Advanced tactical and strategic doctrines and policy are developed there as well.
The Ghana Armed Forces Command and Staff College (GAFCSC), which has the responsibility of training senior GAF and allied officers of Africa, will expand its current training programs with the addition of the proposed war college.
