The Executive Director of the Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO), Commissioner of Police (COP) Maa Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah, has charged students of Course 81 to be fully committed to problem-solving, particularly in the training of personnel, their administration, and welfare.

She made the clarion call while addressing Junior Staff Course 81 graduates during their graduation ceremony at the Ghana Armed Forces Command and Staff College (GAFCSC) on Friday, 14 June 2024.

COP Tiwaa urged them to uphold the tenets of discipline, integrity, and dedication within the Ghana Armed Forces by applying the knowledge and expertise they had acquired during their training. She stated that, as officers, the course would enable them to broaden their professional and general outlook on matters of both national and international interest.

She expressed optimism that the knowledge gained would put them in a better position to appreciate and effectively manage the multi-dimensional challenges they would face in their careers.

The Executive Director of EOCO reminded the students of how the world is beset with several threats to peace and security, stemming from terrorism, ethnic and religious disputes, as well as natural, environmental, and human-induced disasters. She, however, appealed to them to constantly strive for a clearer understanding of what it takes to mitigate these threats.

'I exhort you, therefore, as professional military officers, to be proactive in your awareness and preparations at all times, to stay ahead of the challenges you might encounter in your future endeavors,’ she added.

The Assistant Commandant in charge of the Junior Division, Brigadier General Albert Kwadwo Dawohoso, in his course report, indicated that Junior Staff Course 81 assembled on 26 January 2024, and commenced lectures on 29 January 2024 with 76 students, of which 67 were from the GAF while the remaining 9 were Allied students.

At the end of the 19-week course, Major Michael Ekpale was adjudged the overall best student, Captain Victor Ngbede and Major Etornam Nuapah were recognized as the best Allied students and recipients of the Everard Award, respectively.
