The minority in Parliament has alleged that government is secretly enlisting party members into the nation’s security services.
Speaking to the media, MP for Builsa North, James Agalga, stated that these recruits are being secretly taken through processes to join the Ghana Police Service, Prison Service, and Immigration Service.
Referring to the President’s order to the former Inspector-General of Police, David Asante Apeatu in 2018, to halt the recruitment processes, the minority spelt out their reasons for making such a claim.
“The minority hereby demands the immediate cancellation of the secret recruitment exercises embarked upon by the Police, Prison and Immigration Services in 2019,” Agalga said.
Mr Agalga said there were no advertisements made calling for interested persons to apply for recruitment into the various services.
“The Prisons Service has also, sometime last week invited persons in suspicious circumstances for medical screening for purposes of recruitment,” he claimed.
In light of this, they have called for the adoption of the electronic recruitment system to reduce the involvement of humans in the whole process.
This comes after several other accusations have been levelled against the government for training suspected vigilantes to disrupt the 2020 elections.
