Some retired soldiers belonging to a group known as Alliance for Safeguarding the Integrity of the Security Services (ASISS) have issued a statement have pressed the alarm button over what they consider the wanton sale of properties belonging to the Ghana Armed Forces across the country.

In a statement jointly signed by Lt Col A. Serebour (RTD), Wg Cdr B.A Asamoah (RTD) and Major N. Mensah (RTD) said its meant to “vehemently protest against indiscriminate sale” of army properties in the country because the practice has “the potential to inhibit future development and expansion of the service.”

They were emphatic that some properties of the military, including historic places were being sold out to private developers, something which, according to them, the hierarchy of the military must pull the brakes over as a means of protecting and preserving the forces' heritage for future generations.

“We have convincing evidence that Ghana Armed Forces properties, including places of historic importance are being sold to private developers.”

The group listed among the properties being sold as: No.1 Roman Ridge Residence, Army Officers Mess, 1 Drake Avenue, Labadi Villa’s land, Teshie Camp and some Garrisons around the country.

Reliable information reaching them, according to the statement is that the spree is not limited to Accra but to other garrisons across the country.

These properties, according to the retired soldiers are being sold to private developers to be used for shopping malls, hotels, private hospitals, filling stations among others.
