The service commanders led by the Chief of Defence Staff Lieutenant –General Peter Augustine Blay have pledged full allegiance to their new Commander-in-Chief and President of the country, John Mahama at a meeting in the Castle.

They have also sworn to protect and defend the constitution of Ghana even at the peril of their lives.

Lt-Gen Blay who spoke on behalf of the forces extended their condolences to the family of the late President John Mills, who died Tuesday after a short illness.

He swore that the Military High Command as well as the Police Chiefs led by the Inspector General of Police will be loyal to him and to the Constitution of Ghana.

He said they will be working together to ensure internal peace in the country at all times.

The president John Mahama was grateful for the allegiance and assured of government’s continued logistical support to the security services in order for them to carry out their constitutional mandate.

He said the Ghana Armed Forces is renowned for its level of professionalism both internally and externally and will count on their continued support.

He said having been the chairman of the Police Council, he has struck a good working relationship with the police hierarchy and hopes to build on that relationship.

Joy News’ Presidential Correspondent Seth Kwame Boateng said the president on his second day in office will be meeting the Speaker of Parliament Joyce Banford-Addo and the judges of the Supreme Court
