Things are certainly hard and many want to enjoy too, but that can be by prayers, for God to open a way, as illegal means, will not be countenanced.
In a post sighted on the Ministry of Information's Facebook page, it exposed the ply and persons behind it, as it denied any knowledge of it.
According to the ministry, the activities of a fake 2021 protocol e-recruitment portal purporting to be from the Public Relations Department of the General Headquarters of the Ghana Armed Forces, provides a fake portal to help recruit people at a fee, payable through a MOMO number, and has been circulating on social media platforms including WhatsApp, inviting Ghanaians to apply to join security and other allied services.
The statement released and sighted read that:
The attention of the general public is drawn to a fake 2021 protocol e-recruitment portal purporting to be from the Public Relations Department of the General Headquarters of the Ghana Armed Forces and signed by Vice Admiral Seth “Amoano”, Chief of Defence Staff (CDS).
The said e-recruitment portal has been circulating on social media platforms notably on WhatsApp, inviting Ghanaians to apply to join the following security and other allied services;
Ghana Armed Forces
Ghana Police Service
Ghana Immigration Service
Ghana National Fire Service
Ghana Prisons Service
Ghana Revenue Authority
Ghana Ambulance Service
Investigations reveal that an MTN number 0246300052 registered under the name “Thomas Oppong” has been attached to facilitate contact by interested applicants. Further, it was gathered that the account has been taking monies as processing fees from interested persons.
The general public is hereby advised to take note of this fake e-recruitment portal in order not fall victims to such fraudulent act.
With hundreds of thousands, queuing to be recruited into the military, as the opportunity has been opened up, probably for the first time in five (5) years, since the current government cane to power, as seen here in this viral video at Facebook (VIDEO), this press release may be well a saver, as many are truly desirous of changing their unemployment status, at all cost.
