The “Lion-hene” (king of lions) also identified operational, administrative, and logistical concerns that require immediate attention in order for his unit to perform optimally.

COAS praised the CO 5 Infantry Battalion, Officers, Soldiers, and Defense Civilian Staff for their dedication to duty and support of Command. During an interactive durbar, he urged personnel to be cautious when dealing with personnel from sister security agencies, emphasizing that the Ghana Army and other security agencies are partners rather than adversaries, and that the Ghana Police have the primary responsibility for ensuring internal peace and security.
