Accra Jan. 7, GNA – Brigadier-General Thomas
Oppong-Peprah, former General Officer Commanding (GOC), Southern Command
(S/Comd) has commissioned a six-bedroom self-contained accommodation and a
guardhouse for the Eastern Gate at HQ, for soldiers of S/Comd Headquarters
This project would cater for the increase in
enlistment into the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) to commensurate with general
infrastructure development and accommodation provision in particular, with
recent demands skyrocketing.
The commissioning ceremony was witnessed by
personnel of GAF and the Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) of Mayfair Estates
Limited, Buildaf Company Limited and Paragon Co Ltd, who variously helped in
the construction of structures at the Command HQ.
In their various contributions to projects at
the Command, Mayfair Estates Limited – a real Estates company – bore the entire
cost of the construction of the apartments christened “Mayfair Block”
Buildaf Company Limited bore the cost of the Eastern Gate guardhouse from
foundation to roofing level.
Additionally, Paragon Co. Ltd undertook the
painting and tiling of the guardhouse, renovated two accommodation blocks and
the Kpeshie Medical Centre, re-roofed the dining hall and reconstructed the
Military Police Post, all at the HQ, at the company’s expense.
“Having been actively involved
personally, in the genesis of these projects and, as a living witness and a
participant in several meetings, I can only express my joy and satisfaction in
commissioning them”, Brigadier-General Oppong-Peprah said.
“I appeal to the men and women who will
be allocated these self-contained rooms and those who would rest in the
guardhouse, to take good care of the facilities and consider them a privilege
to reside in them and not leave them to deteriorate”, the former GOC said.

Osei-Wusu – Director-General, Defence Industries Department, Paa Kwesi Serebuor
– CEO, Paragon Co. Ltd, Mr Abu Frimpong Kwaning – CEO, Buildaf Company Limited
