Accra, Ghana, January 12, 2019//-Rear Admiral Seth Amoama has officially taken over the staff of command from Rear Admiral Peter Kofi Faidoo, as the new Chief of the Naval Staff (CNS) of the Ghana Navy.

Rear Admiral Faidoo was CNS for three years, and in all, he served the Ghana Navy for 39 years during when he distinguished himself as a successful Naval Officer.

The successes chalked by the former CNS include the functioning of the Naval Training Command, completed drawings for the school of Maritime Operations, infrastructural development, operation orientation and sustaining operational ships at sea to protect the country’s territorial waters.

In view of the legacy he is inheriting, Rear Admiral Amoama, the new CNS, in his inaugural speech, promised to continue the good works of his predecessor and tap from his experiences.

He promised to complete all projects and initiatives by his predecessors that are aimed at bringing about drastic change and development.

Rear Admiral Amoama observed the severe lack of accommodation for officers as an immediate challenge he would work hard to address.

“The morale in the Ghana Navy is at its best and to keep the momentum, the progress made in the provision of the accommodation would be improved upon,” Rear Admiral Seth Amoama assured the officers and men of the Ghana Navy.

He thanked President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for the honour done him with the high office, where he promised to continue to offer his unrelented service to the country.

The out-gone Chief of Naval Staff, Rear Admiral Kofi Faidoo, on his part, charged his successor to do all that he can to tap into the experiences of the former CNSs, retired Admirals and Generals, adding: “These are think-tanks on their own and are always ready to lend a helping hand.”

The retired CNS implored his successor to endeavour to make the concerns expressed by the officers and sailors his guiding principles, especially at a point in history of the Ghana Navy, when capacity levels are at their peak.
