MP offers to assist constituents get recruited into various security services (statement)

Friday, August 27 2021

The former Executive Secretary to three former Inspector Generals of police Hon. Peter Lanchene Toobu has extended his helping hand to get youth in his constituency get recruited into the various security services. The retired commissioner of police who is also the member of parliament for Wa West constituency in the Upper West region announced this offer in a letter he posted on his official Facebook wall yesterday intercepted by CitizenOne.

According to the NDC legislator, the Ghana Police Service (GPS), the Ghana Prison Service (GPD), Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) and the Ghana Immigration Service (GIP) have announced mass recruitment which starts today, 27th August. He said he was willing to absorb the cost of voucher or application forms for the first fifty applicants. In the addition, the retired police officer was going to absorb the full cost of internet service for all applicants from his constituency.

"Following the financial clearance and subsequent publication for recruitment into the Ghana Police Service, Ghana Prison Service, Ghana Immigration Service and Ghana National Fire Service, I wish to announce that I am absorbing the cost of vouchers and the online application services for the first fifty prospective applicants from Wa West constituency. In addition to the first fifty, I am extending the free online application to all prospective applicants from Wa West constituency", part of the statement read.

The MP however cautioned against the use of middlemen called 'protocols'. "I am not aware of any protocol recruitment. Beware of persons who will use clone accounts of people on social media to demand for monies to get you recruited", he admonished in the letter.

Many people who read the statement applauded the MP for such a wonderful gesture. They encouraged other MPs to emulate same. However, others believe he was doing so to lesson the amount of pressure that may come on him from the youth in his constituency to get them recruited.

Earlier this week, the interior ministry announced on its official website that mass recruitment into the Ghana Police Service, Ghana Immigration Service, Ghana Prison Service and Ghana National Fire Service will begin on Friday. According to the announcement which was also published in the national dailies, all applicants must be Ghanians by birth and must not be above the ages stated for various categories by 1st December 2021. In addition applicants must be of good character and must not have any criminal records.
