Gov’t has increased Immigration service recruitment from 2,850 to 14,300 – Dr. Bawumia
The vice President of the Republic of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has once again touted the job creation prowess of the New Patriotic Party government under the leadership of President Nana Addo-Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
According to him, his government has since assuming office in 2017 recruited more people into the security service from several 2,500 to 14,800.
Speaking as a distinguished guest of honor at the GIS handing out ceremony for the Narcotics Control Commission cadet intake 7 in Assin Faso, he highlighted the government’s assistance in enhancing training, lodging, and other essential amenities.
“I was Special Guest of Honour at the passing out ceremony for the Narcotics Control Commission’s Cadet Intake 7 held at the Ghana Immigration Training School, Assin Foso.
I noted that our Government has created many opportunities for the recruitment of personnel into the security services. As an example, when we assumed office in 2017 the Immigration Service had a total staff of 2,850 officers.
Today, six years later, the number has increased to 14,300 as we have increased training, accommodation and other facilities. By contrast, in the 8 years before we came into office the number of people recruited into the Immigration service was less than 500 in total.”
