The apartment block has each of the rooms fitted with kitchens and washrooms costing a total of about GHC1.5 million.
Commissioning the block, the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) Vice Admiral Seth Amoama noted that the edifice aside solving the accommodation challenge will also be maintained.
“The accommodation challenge was compounded by the lack of barrack space with most of the young soldiers living outside the barracks, affecting the reaction time for troops mobilization for emergency operation.” he said.
CEO of Mayfair Estates John Otumfuor Watson noted that the project is in line with the company’s corporate social responsibility which he believes will also increase productivity among the men and women in uniform.
He disclosed “I felt that as a son of the military, I decided to help them in various ways, nothing to do with the PPP but rather to fund most of these projects myself.”
“I built a block for Southern command called the Mayfair block. I also built accommodation for them at Reky, that building was also over GHC1.5 million” he added.
