Ghana to train Special Forces | Ghanaweb

Government is planning to establish what Vice President Bawumia has described as ‘a forward operating base’ at the western border and to train and equip Special Forces for emerging maritime threats.

He says, “There is growing awareness that the vast resources and potential in the Gulf of Guinea are being undermined by multifaceted domestic, regional and international threats and vulnerabilities.”

Rather than contributing to stability and economic prosperity in the sub-region, he indicated that “Pervasive insecurity in this resource-laden maritime environment has resulted in more than $2 billion annual financial losses, significantly constrained investment and economic prospects, growing crime and potentially adverse political consequences.”
