Minority in Parliament Raises Alarm Over Illegal Recruitment into Security Services


The Minority in Parliament has expressed grave concerns over what they believe to be clandestine and illegal recruitment into the security services by the government ahead of the December elections. Apexnewsgh reports

Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, the Minority Leader, alleged during a news conference that all NPP Parliamentary candidates have been allocated 30 slots each to select NPP loyalists and supporters for positions within the security services, including the police and army.

Dr. Forson urged President Akufo-Addo and the government to halt what he described as undemocratic behavior, emphasizing the need for transparency and fairness in recruitment processes within the security sector. The Minority Leader asserted that the Minority in Parliament would remain vigilant and oppose any attempts to manipulate the upcoming elections.

He reiterated the commitment of National Democratic Congress MPs to uphold the integrity of the electoral process and prevent any actions that could undermine democracy. “Notwithstanding the fact that the Minority raised serious concerns about the criteria adopted by the NPP government to recruit personnel into the security services, it has persisted in taking additional steps in the last few days that we have seen.”

The Minority claims that the NPP government has illegally and fraudulently given out 30 slots to all NPP parliamentary candidates across the country for recruitment into the security services.

This allegation has raised concerns about the government’s commitment to transparency and fairness in the recruitment process. The Minority’s warning comes as Ghana prepares for the December elections, and the integrity of the electoral process is under scrutiny.
