The Ministry of Finance through the Public Rations Unit has debunked the news circulating in the media about an embargo placed on the recruitment in security agencies.
In a press release, the ministry informed the public about a certain news disseminating in the media which is false. The content of the news seeks to project the information that, President Nana Akuffo Addo through the Finance Ministry, placed a temporary ban on recruitment in the state security sector.
In addition, they realized the signature of the Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta was on the fake news. They want the public to reject such publication, because the ministry never issued such directive.
Again, the ministry said they are focused in implementing its mandate and achieving the policies in the 2021 budget. The Ghana CARES program was cited in the letter to grossly targeted, in achieving economic recovery. It will also speedily promote the structural economic transformation of the country.
The ministry has smelled foul play in the issue. They suspected some people to be behind such fake news, because of their selfish and parochial interest. Ghanaians are therefore cautioned not to imbibe such information, and treat it with all contempt it deserves.
According to the Finance Ministry Caretaker Osei Mensah Bonsu, during the budget statement reading in Parliament, GhanaCARES (obaatanpa) program is the boldest and biggest, economic recovery program in the Nation’s history. The government is investing GH$ 100 billion into the various sectors of the economy. There will be a massive investment in entrepreneurship, education, infrastructure, trade and industry, housing, aviation, health, digitization, tourism, hospitality, creative arts, automobile, petroleum and many more.
In the past days, several media house and social media platforms are flooded with the news about the directive of the Finance Ministry directives to put recruitment in the security agencies on hold due to financial challenges. It generated massive reactions from the public, where some are totally against the decision and few people also in agreement.
