The Commanding General of the US Army Europe and Africa, General Christopher Cavoli has paid a visit to the Northern Command.
The visit on Wednesday 17 November 2021 was aimed at fostering the relationship between the two partner forces. He was hosted by the General Officer Commanding (GOC) Northern Command, Brigadier General Mohammed Moses Aryee and the Tamale Air Force Base Commander, Air Commodore David Akrong.
The GOC in his interaction with General Cavoli expressed his appreciation to the US government for their support to the Ghana Army especially in the area of training. He stated that the training programmes were timely as Ghana was facing threats of violent extremism.
General Cavoli used the opportunity to interact with troops of Northern Command who were undergoing training by 2nd Security Forces Assistance Brigade of the US Army at the Kamina Barracks. He charged the participants to always obey the pledge they made to their country and further urged them to wholly commit themselves to the training.
General Cavoli was accompanied by the US Ambassador to Ghana, Her Excellency Stephanie Sullivan.
