Parliament has approved a loan agreement for the purchase and refurbishment of two second hand Germany naval ships.

The two ships to cost about 37 million US dollars will include supply of equipment, inventory and spares, training of crew and the transportation of the ships to Ghana.

The house also approved an amount of 100 million dollars for the procurement of strategic equipment to re-equip the Army and Air force and also improve barracks accommodation for the soldiers.

The two agreements were approved behind closed sittings because it involves the country's security.
