Jamal Tonzua, a former Captain of the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF), has denied allegations made against him by the Department of Public Relations in a recent press release. The statement, issued on May 4th, claimed that Tonzua had used his military rank in his civilian life. However, Tonzua has firmly refuted these allegations, stating that he has not addressed or introduced himself as Captain Jamal Tonzua, either publicly or privately.

The press release by the Ghana Armed Forces had cautioned the retired Captain against using the titles ‘Captain Retired’ or ‘Ex-Captain’ in civilian life, citing his years of service as the reason he did not qualify for the title.

Tonzua has expressed his disappointment and anger towards the release, stating that it contained private information about his period of service, which he considered a flagrant illegality. He has reiterated his commitment to enhancing democratic control, accountability, and integrity within the Ghana Armed Forces.

Tonzua has also called into question the motives behind the Ghana Armed Forces’ recent press release, suggesting that it may be an attempt to silence him or curtail his activities as a legal advisor to the Operation Vanguard.

For the most part, Tonzua’s denial of the allegations shows his commitment to maintaining the highest level of professionalism and integrity. It is imperative that the Ghana Armed Forces conduct themselves in a manner consistent with the rule of law and respect for individuals’ rights. Tonzua’s commitment to enhancing democratic control, accountability, and integrity within the military is laudable, and he should be commended for his efforts in this regard.
