John Mahama Promises Military Barracks in Six New Regions to Enhance Security if Elected as President

John Dramani Mahama, the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has pledged to address security concerns in the six newly created regions by establishing military barracks in each region if he wins the 2024 elections.

During his speech in Gambaga, in the North East Region, as part of his Building the Ghana We Want Tour, Mahama emphasized the need for improved security in the new regions. He expressed the importance of taking proactive measures to ensure the safety and well-being of residents.

Mahama plans to enhance security infrastructure and respond quickly to emerging threats by establishing military barracks in each of the six regions. He also mentioned the formation of joint military and police anti-armed robbery squads, with one squad dedicated to the North East Region to combat armed robbery.

He stated, “We are going to prioritize the completion of abandoned projects. All six new regions are going to have military barracks so that the Ghana Army will be present in all the regions. In addition, we are going to form joint military and police anti-armed robbery squads, and one of those squads will be here in the North East to fight armed robbery. Because we want you to have peace and security to be able to go about your duties, and we know that our 24-hour economy policy cannot work unless there is security and safety for everybody.”
