Ghana Immigration Service officers undergo strategic plan and SOP training

Seventy-seven officers of the Ghana Immigration Service are participating in a five-day workshop aimed at familiarizing them with the Service's Strategic Plan and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).

The workshop, taking place in Accra, seeks to ensure officers understand and effectively implement these crucial documents.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Comptroller-General of Immigration Kwame Asuah Takyi (Esq) emphasized the importance of the exercise.

"This initiative is essential for our officers to internalize these documents and apply them proficiently," he stated.

He urged participants to engage actively and contribute to the development of the action plan for the next two years.

“As you know, the 7-year strategic plan (2023-2029) is being implemented in 2-year phases, and the first action plan is nearly concluded,” Mr. Takyi explained.

The Comptroller-General also expressed gratitude to the Government of Denmark for sponsoring the program through the Strengthening Migration Management in Ghana (SMMIG) project, which is set to conclude next month.

Additionally, he thanked the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) for their impressive execution of the project.

Project Manager for ICMPD, Madam Amala Obiokoye Nwalor, encouraged the officers to ensure that the SOPs and the 2-year Action Plan remain relevant both now and in the future.

The workshop, which is also being conducted simultaneously across other regional commands, includes presentations on the achievements of the previous strategic plan, the drafting process of the current plan, its content, and a draft of the revised SOPs.

The objective is to equip officers at all levels with a thorough understanding of the Service's strategic direction and operational procedures, enabling them to contribute effectively to the Plan’s success through dedication and professionalism.

By the end of the workshop, officers are expected to be well-versed in the strategic plan and SOPs, ensuring a cohesive approach to the Service’s goals and operations in the coming years.
