As early as 5 O'clock AM this morning, Monday, July 19, 2021, thousands of Ghanaians, thronged the El-Wak Sports Stadium in the national capital, Accra to participate in the documentation and medical screening process for recruitment into the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) as announced earlier.
Information gathered from the Commanding Officer for the 5th Infantry Battalion, Lieutenant Colonel Prince Tandoh, about these people revealed that they include Senior High School graduates, degree holders and diploma holders from the various educational institutions in the country.
However, Lieutenant Colonel Tandoh explained that the military had put measures in place to ensure that all the necessary Covid-19 protocols are duly adhered to. He said that that hand sanitizers and Veronica buckets are all available for the masses to get themselves ready for the process.
He had also said that the process is going to be on a first come first serve basis, and that only those with the printout application forms would be allowed to come in, and can also go through the process successfully.
The process is expected to close on Sunday, July 25, 2021.
According to a Citi News report, the screening process will end with at least some 1000 persons who would be scheduled for an aptitude test as the next stage of the recruitment process. However, about 2000 new police personnel are to be recruited by the Inspector General of Police.
The recruitment process started after the Minister for Finance, Mr. Ken Ofori-Atta, gave financial clearance for the recruitment of some 11,000 Ghanaians into the various public sector services including the Ghana Education Service, Ghana Prisons Service, Immigration Service, and the Ghana Police Services.
