The Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) has discredited claims that it is secretly recruiting some persons into the service.
It said it is only screening some prospective servicemen who had applied in the previous year.
The Ranking Member of the Defence and Interior Committee of Parliament, James Agalga recently alleged that the government is secretly recruiting its cronies into the Police, Fire, Immigration and Prison Services.
The National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) MP for Builsa North added that the secret recruitment was targeted as getting sympathizers of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) enlisted into the various security services.
The Minister for Interior, Ambrose Dery earlier described the allegations as baseless.
The Immigration Service also in a press statement said those it is currently screening were persons from the backlog of those who applied to join the service in 2017/2018.
