Six hundred and fifty (650) recruits of the Basic Intantry Training Course 5-21 have been inducted into the Army Special Operations Training School (ASOTS) at a religious and induction parade held on Sunday 19 December, 2021.
Speaking on the theme “Do Your Best”, the Garrison Chaplain Captain Eric Antwi urged the recruits to put in their maximum best throughout the training for themselves, their families and friends who are looking up to them. He further advised them to always seek the face of God in all things.
The Imam, Abdul Rahim Yamusa in his exhortation advised the recruits to be united and be each other’s keepers in order to succeed in their training. He added that it had been destined for them to find themselves in training at a time like this and therefore they have to give glory to God.
The Command Operations Officer at the Headquarters Northern Command, Colonel Michael Opoku who was the Guest of Honour in his remarks congratulated the recruits for opting to join the Ghana Army and making it thus far through the training.
The occasion was also used to commission a newly built mosque for the training school. Also, the Church of Pentecost, Barwah Barracks led by Captain Eric Antwi made a donation of a set of drums and complete Public Address system totalling about GHC5,500 to the training school to aid in their worship and was received by the Commanding Officer of the school, Lt Col Daniel Nii Armah Quaye.
