The hopes and prospects of some Ghanaian youth who were seeking opportunities to work in the various security services will, unfortunately, be dashed.
This is due to the limited 5,000 slots available in the Police Service while Immigration and Fire Service have only 2,000 slots cleared for employment which is far lesser than the thousands of applications received from prospective applicants.
On reasons behind sales of the GHS100 e-voucher, the security services defended that it takes care of their administrative cost as the government often delays with the budget they request for.
But Professor David Abdulai of the Africa Graduate School of Management and Leadership argued that in such instances these cost is supposed to be borne by the government and they have no justification to take such money.
Though many have complained that application forms for such institutions should be free the issue is, as it stands now is not going to end anytime soon, unfortunately.
Per the process required after purchasing the e-voucher to fill the application form the next step will be a call for some assessments and medical examination and finally the successful ones will be made to undergo the training before joining the service.
