Ministry of Defence (Ghana)
The Ministry of Defence (MOD) is one of the key service delivery organs of the Government of the Republic of Ghana under the Office of the Head of Civil Service (OHCS). The Ministry was established in 1957 with the mandate of formulating, and managing the implementation of policies aimed at safeguarding the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the nation as well as ensuring the protection of life and property. Over the years, MOD has evolved and transformed itself to its current status of excellence with regards to performance of its functions.
The MOD mandate is therefore to formulate and implement policies for the defense of our dear nation through the agency of the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF). In charting national defence policies, MOD works in close collaboration with the National Security Secretariat and the Armed Forces Council.See more
