Deputy Minister for Defence, Mr Kofi Amankwaa-Manu, has asked Ghanaians not to pressurise politicians to influence the selection and recruitment of people into the security services.
He said recruitment into the various security services is done on merit and open to every qualified Ghanaian irrespective of his or her political, ethnic, religion or social background.
There is therefore the need for people to desist from asking politicians to intervene for unqualified relatives.
Mr Amankwaa-Manu, who is also the Member of Parliament for Atwima-Kwanwoma, made the call at the NPP delegates’ conference at Twedie.
He said there is no political favouritism in the recruitment exercise therefore, all qualified persons should apply and go through the process of selection.
The MP said he is placing much emphasis on the training of the youth in technical and vocational skills to equip them with employable skills, adding that 100 sewing machines are ready for distribution to apprentice tailors and seamstresses to undergo training.
Plans are also underway to put some of the youth under auto-mechanic training as part of efforts to help the youth to acquire employable skills to create jobs for themselves.
The MP said a parcel of land had been secured for the construction of a Party office for the Constituency, adding that an amount of money had been set aside to support all the electoral areas to function well.
Ashanti Regional Youth Organizer of the NPP, Mr Denis Kwakwa, commended the leadership of the Party in the Constituency for their hard work, which helped to increase the party’s votes in the 2020 general elections.
He called for unity and peace to enable all members to work together to maintain the Party in power in the 2024 elections.
District Chief Executive for Atwima-Kwanwoma, Nana Okyere Tawiah Antwi, said construction works on the road network in the area, are ongoing and urged the people to exercise patience since the projects would be completed to improve the road network in the area.
