Ejisu Member of Parliament (MP), John Kumah has dispelled claims he secured 50 slots in the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) for his constituents.

The MP who doubles as a Deputy Finance Minister described the reports circulating as ‘propaganda’.

Last week, Mr Kumah received 50 newly recruited Immigration Officers from his constituency who had visited his office with their families.

The photo of them went viral with many asserting that he used his position to get them recruited.

But in a statement, the Deputy Finance Minister stated categorically that the claim is false and should be disregarded.

According to him, the officers were at the Ejisu Solution Centre which has been set up to tackle unemployment in the area to show their appreciation for the support they received ahead of their recruitment.

“The Center does not only serve the people of Ejisu but youth in the Ashanti region and its surrounding environments. Over the years, the center has assisted young people to secure jobs in both private and public institutions through proper career guidance and training.

“We receive job requests from youth across the country and we try our best to prepare and assist them apply for jobs,” he explained.

The statement stressed that the immigration officers were not up to 50 and some of them were from Assin Fosu, Berekum, Kwame Danso and other places.

“The Ejisu Solution Centre will continue to assist young persons who need support in finding job placement in Ghana. The Ejisu Club 100 has been of immense support to young entrepreneurs as well. Together we can create wealth and build a prosperous Ghana.”
