The Director at the Institute for Intelligence and Strategic Security, Moses Jatuat has called on security services in the country to devise other creative means of generating income internally other than what he describes as “milking the already unemployed youth under the guise of selling application forms”.
His comment came on the back of the recent opening of security services portals for interested Ghanaians to apply, which saw scores of unemployed youth throng to various venues across the country for the recruitment processes.
Some of the applicants have to pay Ghs 100.00 for the forms, which according to him, is a deliberate intention to extort monies from the already frustrated unemployed youths in the country.
“It appears that and I may not be wrong that, the security services are milking these unemployed people” he stated.
Mr. Jatuat who was speaking on ‘Day Break Upper East’ Show on A1 Radio, remarked that there could have been other ways of recruiting the youths into the security services without them having to make payments.
According to him, the government should; “Let the security agencies look for innovative ways of making revenue rather than the very cheap way of putting out adverts and calling for people to apply and knowing that they are not going to pick that number and you take their money”.
