The President, who was speaking at the first batch of commissioned officers at the Military Academy and Training School, urged them to exhibit exemplary conduct.
“Safeguard and protect the territorial integrity of the nation and its citizens, and not to use your position to antagonise the very citizens whose sacrifices have made your training possible," he said on Friday.
"Indeed, you owe it a duty to the nation to work towards ensuring its peace, stability and development.”
The Commander-in-Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces also urged the new officers to remain conscious of their responsibilities towards the people of the nation, whose security they would be charged to protect.
He urged the new officers to acquire more knowledge in the era of fast-paced technology.
“As young officers, you must be desirous of acquiring more knowledge, so you are not overtaken by the changing tides, in this fast-paced technological era. The sky must be your limit in your quest for information and knowledge,” he added.
The President also reminded them that they are being commissioned into the Ghana Armed Forces, which has carved a niche for itself, over the years, as a unique, disciplined and professional Armed Force, nationally and internationally, in the discharge of its duties.
“It has performed excellently in various international peacekeeping operations, resulting in Ghana being one of the best troop contributing countries for peacekeeping operations in the world,” he added.
