The chair and leader of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Nana Akosua Frimponmaa has called on the Inspector General of Police, Dr. George Akuffo Adampare to investigate last year’s recruitment into the force.
The Ghana Police Service in 2021 opened application for new recruits into the service. At the end of the smooth process that received commendation, a number of applicants could not qualify.
Concerned for Ghanaians who struggled to raise money to buy the application forms but still failed to get in, Nana Akosua Frimponmaa has appealed to Dr. George Akuffo Dampare to look into the recruitment process.
“I will like to commend the IGP for the work he has done so far since he came into office but I have one appeal to him.
“Recently, we all saw the number of people who applied to enter the Police.
“These young ones paid huge fees but weren’t recruited and so my appeal to him is to investigate this matter and refund their moneys to them,” the CPP leader said in her new year’s message to Ghanaians.
Over the years, there have been reports of some illegalities in the recruitment process where there are said to be the use of protocols to favour some applicants over the others.
Nana Akosua Frimponmaa want these and more to be investigated in last year’s recruitment to ensure there is fairness and no cheating.
