The Chief of the Defence Staff of the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) – Vice Admiral (V/Adm) Seth Amoama has challenged authors to consider a blend of traditional arts of print publication with an electronic publication, to stay relevant for the youth and elderly.
He made this known at the launch of a book titled “WEST TO EAST: MY EAST AFRICAN SOJOURNS.”
The 131-page 17 Chapters book was written by Brigadier General (Brig Gen) Daniel Kwadjo Frimpong (Rtd).
The book is the fourth book written by the retired soldier after launching his 1st book titled “Leadership and the Challenges of Command: the Ghana Military Academy Experience” in 2010.
In 2017 the book titled “Kofi Chokosi Speaks” was also launched and in 2019 the book titled “Retirement Musings” was launched.
Describing the author as an astute and accomplished General, who is always ready to support with his immense knowledge and experience Vice Admiral Amoama complimented the author for his good works.
“Your articles which are published on the electronic media are read with remarkable interest, since your analysis on societal issues is not only admirable but also easy to read, understandable and interesting,” he recommended.
