Ghanaian army personnel involved in peace-keeping missions will now receive a daily allowance of $31, a dollar more since the last increment by late President John Atta Mills in 2009.

“We have decided to increase by $1 a day, the rate that is paid to peace-keeping soldiers,” President Mahama announced during the inauguration of the Naval headquarters at Burma Camp in Accra.

He also assured the government would ensure that allowances due army personnel were paid promptly.

President Mahama also noted that things in the army in terms of logistics are much better than it was when his government took over in 2009.

According to him, there are a number of infrastructural and logistical developments in the Armed Forces including three new troop transport carriers for the Air Force.

“One is currently serving in Mali with the United Nations, two are available domestically,” Mr. Mahama added.
