Mr Dominic Nitiwul, the Minister for Defence, speaking at the Closing Ceremony of the 2018 Defence Management Course, labelled the course as ‘delicate to tackling the sophisticated and inductive nature of the threat of today’s world.

Brigadier General Edem Fiawoo, who delivered the speech on behalf of the Defence Minister at the event held on Friday at the Ghana Armed Forces Command and Staff College (GAFCSC), said training in the management of defence and security was a critical requirement for any nation.

He said the course was designed to expose uniformed and civilian personnel working within the security sector to principles and techniques for the governance and management of the defence and security sector of our nations, and into the issues that arrive in that regard.

Brigadier General Fiawoo noted that the course’s objectives were relevant and vital for continuous national development as well as that of the allied student, nations and Africa as a whole.

He said a key objective of the course was to enable participants and students to locate defence within the wider context of national and regional security and it was crucial to defence management as it was a multi-agency task requiring varied skills and capabilities.

Brigadier General Fiawoo said no one agency could possibly develop all the capabilities required to manage even the simplest security and defence problem and so ffective coordination of involved agencies efforts was a fundamental success factor, he said.

“In this regard, you who participated must endeavour to stay in touch and to exchange information on a regular basis. The links you have made here, should serve as a foundation for improved collaboration between your agencies in the healthier management of our defence, as you put all that you have learnt over the last two weeks to work,” he said.
