The 1988 and 1989 year group of soldiers have been placed on compulsory retirement list effective this year. The beneficiaries’ officers were ranked, MWO, SWO, WOI, WOII, S/SGT, CPK and L/CPL.

Information circulating among the officers revealed that Senior Warrant Officers were to receive GHC 92,859.00 as 80% of their gratuities but instead they received GHC 60, 000.00. Senior Staff were given GHC 55, 000.00 instead of 72,007.00 due them.
