There is uneasy calm at the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) over some ongoing promotions.
DAILY GUIDE intercepted wireless message dated Tuesday, December 13, 2016 from the Human Resource Department of GIS and signed by one Chief Superintendent Faisal Disu for and on behalf of the Controller-General.
The memo titled, ‘submission of Curriculum Vitae for promotion interview,’ which was addressed to all management members, regional commanders, the commandant, Immigration Service Academy and Training School, sector commanders, departmental and sectional heads and controls, asked the selected officers to submit their Curriculum Vitae for promotion from the rank of Assistant Commissioner to Deputy Commissioner.
The list includes eight Assistant Commissioners: Louis Francis Aikins, Laud Ofori Afriffah, Eric Afari, Prosper Price Delali Asima, Isaac Owusu Mensah, Robert Kwadzo Abofra, Peter Claver Nantuo and Isaac Luortey.
It said, “I am directed to inform you that the attached list of senior officers have been shortlisted for promotions to the next higher ranks. They are to submit copies of their CVs to the Human Resource Department not later than 30th December, 2016. Please inform them accordingly.”
The timing of these promotions has raised eyebrows in the Service.
There are reports of mass promotions in various government agencies with less than a month for the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) to hand over to the incoming NPP administration led by Nana Akufo-Addo.
Similar promotions are said to be taking place at other government agencies such as Ghana Maritime Authority where the Director General, Peter Azumah has been in office for more than 15 years.
“The question is why are they in a hurry to promote people at this time?” some officers quizzed.
Such promotions are usually politically motivated, we wonder why they want to do it on the blind side of the incoming administration, according to them.
