Kumasi City Mayor Hon Osei Assibey Antwi has coughed out a laudable recommendation to authorities in charge of Ghana Military.
He has suggested that when it comes to recruitment of persons into the military, authorities responsible should foremost give consideration to students who during their tenure in school were part of the Cadet Core before considering others.
“Officials should first all give opportunity to students who during their tenure in school availed themselves for the Cadet Core training”
In his defense, he explained that ” if you look at their performance in school, their interest and passion that they have, if after the university there are people that we want to join the military, it should be these people not those who are now going to be trained.”
The city Mayor made the above call at Martyrs of Uganda R/C Primary School in Kumasi when launch of a tree planting partnership program between the assembly and Central Sector Cadet Corps was in session.
Hon Osei Assibey underlined in his statement that “if the minister will buy onto this recommendation, it will go a long to reduce the budget of the military with regards to training.”
