National Security Advisor Brigadier General Joseph Nunoo Mensah has charged the country’s security agencies to discharge their duties fairly but firmly on December 7, 2012.
He was speaking at a conference organized in Accra by Ghana Immigration Service for regional commanders.
The conference, which was under the theme “The Role of GIS in Election 2012”, sought to deliberate on the challenges of the Service.
It also examined the feasibility of a four-year plan for the Service.
Brigadier General Nunoo Mensah challenged the immigration officers to prevent foreigners from crossing the country’s borders illegally prior to the December polls in order ensure its credibility.
“You should be completely neutral in discharging your duties to make the country a safe place for all of us,” he advised.
“When you are given an assignment, you are doing it for Ghana and not for any political party.”
The Acting Director of Immigration, COP Dr Peter Wiredu, charged the officers to work professionally in collaboration with the National Election Task Force to ensure an incident-free election.
