Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia has assured the security services in the country that government will continue to meet their human resource needs as they demand.
He noted that not only the human resource needs of the services will be provided, but also strive to provide the tools, logistics and other essentials required to ensure peak performance.
Dr Bawumia made the promise on Monday, 19 December 2022, when he appeared as the Review Officer at the Graduation Parade for Cadet Course Intake 30 of the Ghana Prisons Service at the Prisons Training School in Accra.
The 203 officers who graduated are the last cohort of six batches, for a total of 2,000 personnel, recruited into the Prisons Service as part of measures by the government to boost the capacity of the service to deliver on its mandate.
According to him other security agencies have seen a similar boost in numbers since 2017.
“I assured that Government will continue to meet not only the human resource needs of the Services, but will also strive to provide the tools, logistics and other essentials required to ensure peak performance,” he said in a post on Facebook.
