By taking care of their basic needs, the government is creating a more stable and motivated workforce.
The security services are an essential aspect of any country, and the government’s decision to increase their salaries shows that they recognize the value of these services.
However, the recent military brutalities in Ashaiman have put the security services under scrutiny. The Minister of Defence has called for respect for people in uniform, emphasizing that the best way to avoid such unfortunate incidents is to show respect to servicemen.
The Defence and Interior Committee of Parliament has also revealed that they will pay a visit to the Ashaiman community to investigate the incident further.

In conclusion, the government of Ghana under the leadership of President Akufo-Addo has taken a significant step by tripling the salaries of soldiers and police officers.
This move is not only a sign of the government’s commitment to taking care of the basic needs of the security services but also a strategic move to create a more stable and motivated workforce.
However, recent incidents of military brutalities in Ashaiman show that there is still much work to be done to ensure that the security services are respected and treated fairly.
