The Ghana Armed Forces, (GAF) High Command has cited a media report in which the La Traditional Council is claiming that the government has released 114 Acres of Burma Camp Lands to them for development.
This claim was made by the La Traditional Council during a ceremony which was performed to signify the reclamation of the said land.
In a statement signed by the Director General Public Relations, the Military High Command wishes to acknowledge that there are ongoing discussions by a committee set up by the Minister for Lands and Natural Resources to deliberate and recommend possible measures to resolve the land issue.
However, the Ghana Armed Forces has not received any directives from the Ministry of Defense, which is the supervising Ministry, directing that the land should be released to the La Traditional Council. It says neither has any government agency directed the Ghana Armed Forces to release any land to any Traditional Authority.
The statement said those lands remain a critical need of the Ghana Armed Forces for the preservation of State security.
The Ghana Armed Forces said they look forward to a peaceful resolution of the matter through the Committee’s work by government.
The Military High Command wishes to assure all personnel of Ghana Armed Forces of its desire and resolve to protect the interest of the Ghana Armed Forces at all times.
