Ghana Immigration Service warns public against unauthorised recruitment agents

Authorities of Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) has warned the public against individuals who posed as employment agents for the Service.

Such impostors are allegedly issuing appointment letters to people ahead of a scheduled recruitment exercise in September.

Mr Francis Palmdeti, Head of Public Affairs Unit of GIS, told GNA in an interview on Wednesday that there was no such recruitment exercise and the authorities had not engaged any person to conduct any employment activity on its behalf.

He said the GIS followed a recruitment procedure that was always published in the media as a notice to the public.

“Recruitment criteria are stated in the advertisement. Examination or interview is conducted for short listed candidates. Successful candidates are then requested to undergo medical examination at approved health centres,” he said.

Other procedures, he said, included issuing out prospectus for persons to be trained at GIS’s academy after which successful candidates were given appointment letters.

Mr Palmdeti said “any future recruitment exercise would follow laid-down procedure”.

In another development, authorities of GIS on Tuesday apprehended 31-year-old Alex Dzineku, a teacher at Akroso Senior High School in the Eastern Region, for posing as an agent of the GIS.

He allegedly extorted between GH¢500 and GH¢600 from his victims and promised securing employment at GIS for them.

The authorities are conducting investigations before handing over Mr Dzineku to the police for further investigations.
