TIGHTEN THE BORDERS - DIRECTOR

 

The Acting Director of Immigration, Mr. Felix Yaw  Sarpong,  says there is the need to tighten the security and intelligence at the country’ s borders considering the nation’s  upcoming  elections, and  with  the  recent proliferation of terrorist cells in Africa and arms smuggling.

In view of that, he said the Border Patrol Unit, (BPU) of the Service needs to be armed, construct shelters at strategic places, procure communication equipment and other logistics for them for effective monitoring.

He was however quick to add that despite their inadequate logistics, and other operational challenge, the Unit has worked tirelessly in securing the country’s borders with a number of  interceptions made.

The Director appealed to the personnel not to renege in giving off their best to move the Service forward, because the conditions of service of personnel have been duly catered for in GIS’s new Regulations which would be laid before parliament after the current bill is passed.


He also assured the Service that space constraints which has become a major challenge within the institution would be addressed, considering that the Service is still renting properties at exorbitant prices.


Mr. Sarpong expressed his appreciation to all who sent him congratulatory and goodwill messages. He also thanked his two Deputies in charge of finance and Administration and Legal for their support as well as all management members and called for the support of  personnel to make his tenure successful and productive.He made these remarks when he addressed a guard of honour held here in Accra.
