The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has charged the Ministry of Defence to release GH¢200,000 towards the welfare of members of the Veterans Association of Ghana (VAG).
Per the President’s instruction, the veterans had served Ghana well and distinguished themselves at the cost of their lives, for which reason they had secured a special place within the scheme of national life and deserved to be honoured.
