The Ministry of Interior has cautioned potential recruits into the country’s security services to be wary of scammers who make demands on them for money to help them in the process.

In a statement issued on Friday, September 10, the Ministry said the “recruitment will be based on merit”.

The statement signed by Chief Director of the Ministry Adelaide Anno-Kumi disclosed that a total of 11,000 Ghanaians will be recruited into services viz the Ghana Police Service, the Ghana Immigration Service, the Ghana Prisons Service and the Ghana National Fire Service.

According to the Ministry, the resolve to recruit that number is “to enhance security as well as to address unemployment challenges in the country so that the youth of this country can be gainfully employed”.

Already, some applicants are said to be trooping to the Ministry to submit their completed application forms.

It said the process is largely online and instructions thereof must be followed.

“The Ministry urges prospective applicants who wish to be recruited into the respective institutions to wait for updates and necessary information on the next steps.”
