Juwel Energy and JP Trustees wholly funded a new 10-unit residential facility worth US$250,000 to house junior rank soldiers of the 64 Infantry Regiment (64 Inf Reg) in Accra, the Counter-Terrorism Unit of the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF). Each of the ten apartment units has a bedroom, living area, washroom and kitchenette.

At the commissioning event, Mr. John Osei-Wusu, CEO of Juwel Energy Ltd, remarked that the building was a product of his respect for the uniform, the Ghanaian military’s integrity, discipline, and sense of ownership. Mr. Osei-Wusu expressed appreciation to Maj. Gen. Thomas Oppong-Peprah and commended his exploits and his commitment to Ghana’s development, citing Maj. Gen. Oppong-Peprah’s involvement with the establishment of the Ghana COVID-19 Treatment Centre at the Ga East Government Hospital.

Chief of the Army Staff (COAS), Maj. Gen. Thomas Oppong-Peprah commissioned the new residential facility. Remarking at the commissioning event, as the Guest of Honour, Maj. Gen. Oppong-Peprah noted that 64 Inf Reg had notably encountered acute accommodation challenges even though the regiment plays a strategic role for Ghana Armed Forces. He thanked Mr. John Osei-Wusu and the Juwel Energy and JP Trustees team for their outstanding benevolence, and assured them that their names would be written in letters of gold.

Maj. Gen. Oppong-Peprah said Ghana Armed Forces was frantically pursuing accommodation solutions for its personnel, through hybrid schemes with government, individuals, as well as private and state organizations to curtail the age-old acute accommodation challenges.
