The President and Commander-in-Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, yesterday observed the change of guard at the Jubilee House.

At a brief but colourful ceremony, a contingent from the Ghana Air Force took over guard duties at the seat of government.

The Naval Contingent that had been keeping guard at the presidency for the past three months handed over duty to the Ghana Air Force, who would be performing the task for the next quarter.

Chief of Staff, Frema Osei Opare; Chief of Defence Staff, Lt. Gen. Obed Akwa; service commanders; senior government officials and the Inspector General of Police (IGP), David Asante-Apeatu, also witnessed the colourful event that was characterised by military drills.

Instituted on the 5th of May, 2013, the ceremony, a replica of the guard changing system at the General Headquarters Command Gate of the GAF, is conducted with 20 each of old and new guards from different services/ regiments, escort contingents, corps of drums and the national / regimental colours under the command of a captain in the army or its equivalence from the other services.

School-children, students and teachers from the Oxford International School, Tiny Gem School, Eno Kwakyewaa International School, Madina Senior High School, Sap’s School and Accra High School, also witnessed the ceremony.
