Government has true to its promise established a trust fund to cater for the wife and children of the late Major Adam Mahama.
The “Major Mahama Trust Fund” will provide support for them in the absence of the late slain soldier who was gruesomely murdered by some residents of Denkyira-Boase in the Central region.
The disclosure was made by the Defence Minister, Honourable Dominic Nitiwul in an interview with Accra-based Starr FM’s Parliamentary Correspondent, Ibrahim Alhassan,
According to Honourable Nitiwul, the move is in fulfillment of government’s promise to the family when the unfortunate incident happened.
He added that government has also provided employment to Babara Mahama, the wife of the late Major Adam Mahama.
“Government promised when he was murdered that we would establish a trust fund for him as part of the four things we originally agreed to establish. So we have been working to ensure that we get that bill established.
“We went to cabinet and cabinet approved of it, we took it to the Gazette, it’s been done and today it’s in Parliament. So it’s a bill that the President will assent to it after Parliament has done its job.
“The objective of the fund is to cater for the welfare of the family of the late military officer. And we are hoping by the end of the month Parliament works on it for it to be passed.”
