Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has taken his digitalization message to the Ghana Armed Forces, urging them to lead the nation’s technology drive. Dr Bawumia was speaking at the graduation ceremony at the Ghana Armed Forces Command and Staff College.

According to the vice president, “…many technologies that we are enjoying today are the product of military research. Examples include microwave ovens, computers, GPS technology, the internet, nuclear energy, walkie-talkies, etc.”

Based on that, he said he was looking forward to seeing the “Ghana Armed Forces, particularly GAFCSC, to help with strategies that will contribute to the government’s digitization agenda”.

“As I requested at last year’s graduation, the government is looking forward to GAFCSC developing modules and programmes that will challenge the ingenuity of the youth, particularly in digitalization awareness and Cybersecurity related issues,” he noted.

“I have repeatedly referred to GAFCSC, as a prime national asset with a place of pride in Ghana and the entire continent as it continues to serve as a citadel of knowledge for our military and that of allied countries.

“Over time, GAFCSC has convincingly carved a niche for itself as the destination of choice for Allied officers and countries who have a desire to achieve professional excellence in their respective Armed Forces.”

According to Bawumia, “The increased demand for vacancies on your programmes should serve as a motivation to explore and tap into other areas of study that are necessary for the socio-economic development of our dear nation and by extension the continent.”

“With the status of the College as a tertiary institution and her flagship Integrated programme, namely: the Passed Staff College (PSC) and the Master of Science in Defense and International Politics; GAFCSC has assumed an even greater role in shaping the leadership and managerial skills of many professionals from Ghana and other sister African countries,” Bawumia stated as reported by the Graphic.
