Member of Parliament for Bawku Central, Mahama Ayariga, has criticized the government’s proposal to enlist 11,000 individuals into different security agencies, labeling it as potentially one of Ghana’s worst security scandals.

Speaking to the media, Mr. Ayariga asserted that the intended recruitment is nothing more than an effort to pacify disgruntled youth with insignificant offerings.

He called on the public to oppose this initiative.

“What is about to happen is potentially the greatest scandal in Ghana’s security sector recruitment history. This rogue exercise must be resisted” Mr. Ayariga stated.

He suggested that the government’s actions stem from concerns about potential unrest similar to recent events in Kenya affecting Ghana as well.

The MP for Bawku Central cautioned that a lack of transparency in the process could lead to increased unrest and public outcry.

“The refusal to use a fair and transparent process to carry out the recruitment might fuel more anger against the political class and so we must fight for the youth with no political connections in order for the youth to be given a fair and equal opportunity in the process” he stressed.

Recent reports indicated that the government will commence clearing the backlog of applicants for various security agencies under the Interior Ministry, beginning Monday, July 8, 2024.

Allegations have been leveled against the government for allocating positions to MPs and parliamentary candidates of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to bolster their electoral prospects.
