GIS Puts Staff On High Alert!

By Francis Asamoah Tuffour -

Personnel of the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) have been put on high alert for the forthcoming election.

Addressing a day's seminar for sectional and unit commanders of the service in Accra on Thursday, the Deputy Director in charge of operations, Moses Gyamfi, reminded the officers of their dual responsibility as front liners at the country's entry points and as peace makers.

The objective of the seminar was to plan and strategies towards the December election.

Mr Gyamfi said that even though a number of personnel would be deployed to the polling centres, security would be beefed up at all the entry points.

He said the borders would not be closed, but security personnel would be put on high alert to ensure that the entry points are safe.

Mr Gyamfi said that the election were critical to the country because the world would be watching to see if Ghana would go through it violence-free.

“As peace makers you are expected to exhibit a high sense of professionalism by being neutral, loyal and fair in the discharge of your duties during the election,” he said.
