The Minister for Defence, Mr. Dominic Nitiwul says the proposed Military Training Jungle and Mountain Warfare Training School on the disputed land between Alavanyo and Nkonya Traditional Areas in the Volta Region is near completion.
He said this on the floor of Parliament when he was responding to a question asked by the Member of Parliament for Hohoe, Mrs. Bernice Heloo on whether the proposed military structures on the said land are in place.
The Minister stated that structurally, the Military School is about 70% complete. The outstanding works include electrical works, water connections, access road to the site and fencing of the camp.
He also indicated that in view of the fact that the structures are not fully completed, the School currently is not operational.
He added that it is envisaged that when funds become available in 2018, the School would be completed for commission and operationalisation.
The Minister briefed the House that in February 2015, the Ministry in collaboration with the National Security Council Secretariat, proposed the establishment of the School.
