The Ministry of Interior has directed prospective applicants into the various security services to submit their application forms there.
A statement issued by the Ministry of the Interior in Accra yesterday, signed by Mrs Adelaide Anno-Kumi, and copied to the Ghanaian Times, said, the Ministry of the Interior had observed that following the advertisements in the media for the recruitment namely the Ghana Police Service, the Ghana Immigration Service, the Ghana Prisons Service and the Ghana National Fire Service on 21 August, some applicants thronged the Ministry of the Interior in an attempt to submit their applications.
The statement said the Ministry of the Interior did not receive applications on behalf of its agencies.
“The Ministry of the Interior wishes to inform the general public especially, potential applicants into the security services, that applications are online and should be processed as directed in the adverts,” it said.
The statement cautioned prospective applicants who want to be recruited into the various security services to be wary of scammers, who made demands on them for money ostensibly to help them in the recruitment process.
It said the security agencies did not charge people before recruiting them.
The Ministry said recruitment into the security agencies were based on merit.
It said as part of the exercise, about 11,000 people would be recruited into the various security agencies.
The statement said the recruitment into the security services was to help address the unemployment challenges facing the country and also give opportunity for the youth to be gainfully employed.
The Ministry urged prospective applicants who wish to be recruited into the respective institutions to wait for updates and necessary information on the next steps.
“The Ministry of the Interior wishes the prospective youth all the best of luck,” the statement said.
