Many believe that these recruitments serve as avenues to exploit jobless Ghanaian youth for the little they have, Mynewsgh reported.

Prof Stephen Kwaku Asare, a Ghanaian lawyer in the US was one of such complaints who could not make sense of why the youth wants to service the country but would have to pay to even be considered for recruitment.

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that in a statement issued on Friday, September 10, the Ministry said the “recruitment will be based on merit”.

The Chief Director of the Ministry Adelaide Anno-Kumi said the 11,000 Ghanaians that will be recruited into services will enhance security in the country.

Anno Kumi said it will help address unemployment challenges in the country so that the youth of this country can be gainfully employed. He reiterated that the application would be done online, with no middlemen involved.

The Bono East Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Nurudeen Fuseini, revealed that the NPP will make sure members of the party will be included in the current recruitments.

He said the NPP will block the entry of people who are known for criticising the government and known supporters of the NDC.

Nurudeen encouraged members of the NPP to send in their applications to be considered.
