Ghana Immigration Service to train senior immigration officers in sub-region

The Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) is to begin upgrading its infrastructure as well as review its curriculum to enable it to deliver professional and management courses for colleagues within and beyond the sub-region.

The review of the curriculum would see the GIS develop courses in the senior category and other customized disciplines.

GIS has already secured financial support from the Danish government to fund the exercise.

Mr Martin Amidu, the Minister of Interior, said this when addressing the passing-out parade of 50 Liberian recruits of the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization (BIN) at the GIS Academy and Training School (GISATS) at Assin-Fosu.

Mr Amidu, who did not disclose details of the support and when the exercise would begin, said to ensure effective management of migration and border control, the GIS had been undergoing swift and fundamental changes, adding “this support would further strengthen it to deliver responsive services to the travelling public.”

The recruits, comprising 40 males and 10 females, forming the second batch of the Liberian intake, underwent a four-month intensive migration training programme which was a partnership among the GIS, Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS)/Repatriation and Departure Service (RDS) of the Netherlands, BIN of Liberia and the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) at the GISATS.

Under the partnership, GIS will provide the training services, while the government of the Netherlands provides sponsorship for the programme within two years.

The objective of the programme is to strengthen the institutional capacity and competence of BIN of Liberia to effectively manage issues of migration as well as establish a functioning training system to support its human resource development.

The first intake, made up of 50 Liberians which passed-out at the GISATS about eight months ago, had been absorbed into the BIN.

The Minister said due to the splendid performance of officers of GIS, “UNMIL has requested for a long list of more experts in immigration/migration management to be attached to its operations during the period of winding down”.

Mr Amidu said government accepted the request, assuring that Ghana was committed to a stable and prosperous Liberia in particular and the ECOWAS sub-region in general.

He said in addition to the recent approval allowing immigration officers to carry weapons at borders as well as the use of technology to store and share data as response to the fast and changing world, government was also considering a proposal to extend border operational hours for officers of the GIS.

He entreated the recruits to demonstrate initiative, alertness and high sense of discretion and judgment in the discharge of their duties.

“It is my hope that you will deem your post training deployment to any part of the country as a special call to duty for which the national interest must always override your personal expectation,” he said.

He thanked the Netherlands government and UNMIL for their support.

Mr Amidu commended recruit John Clarence Gibson Jnr for being the over-all best recruit and urged him to continue to work hard to improve the systems in Liberia.

Madam Toespraak Rhodia Maas, Director General of RDS of the Netherlands, pledged her country’s continued support for the programme to enhance the healing and construction process of Liberia.

She urged the recruits to discharge their duties well to protect their country and the sub-region as a whole.

She thanked the GIS, BIN and UNMIL for their efforts which ensured the success of the programme.

Dr Boima Fahnbullea Jnr, National Security Advisor of Liberia, thanked Ghana for the fraternal assistance that she had been offering his country.

Dr Fahnbullea described Ghanaian security personnel as a model for the continent, making Ghana to champion democratic reforms on the continent just like how Ghana spearheaded the African liberation struggle.

He commended GIS, the Dutch government and UNMIL for their support towards the reconstruction of Liberia.
