"No Officer has been sacked from Ghana Immigration Service for engaging in partisan politics or supporting a candidate against another" - GIS


The Ghana Immigration Service has refute claims that one of its officers has been sacked as reported by some media outlets.


According to the the Immigration Service, the reportage was untrue and thus should not be given any attention.


In a communique signed by its Head, Public Relations, Supt. Michael Amoako-Atta, he said "Management categorically refutes the claim that an Officer has been summoned or sacked as suggested in the story and the headline respectively. For emphasis, nothing of the sort has happened at the Ghana Immigration Service. No Officer has been sacked from the Ghana Immigration Service for engaging in partisan politics or supporting a candidate against another"


The communique added that the Code of Conduct and Reporting Mechanism of the Service bars Officers from engaging in partisan politics.


This, he explained ensures strict professionalism of Officers in the discharge of their duties, which includes border and migration management, and contribution to national security.


"The attention of Management of the Ghana Immigration Service has been drawn to a story alleges that an Officer of the Service has been summoned over an open support for one Mr. Moses Abor, the then contender of the Minister for the Interior and Member of Parliament for Ayawaso Central, Hon. Henry Quartey in the National Patriotic Party’s recent primaries"


He noted that the story appears to link this incident to the Minister’s recent comments during his visit to the Immigration Service Headquarters, where he cautioned Officers against partisan politics.


"The Interior Minister during his visit admonished all Officers to be professional in the discharge of their duties and eschew partisan politics, especially since this is an election year"
