Immigration officers stationed at Kotoka International Airport have received a strong warning from Interior Minister Henry Quartey, saying that staff members who are discovered to be aiding visitors would be promptly suspended from duty.

Quartey made the declaration when he visited the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) headquarters in Accra.

In his address, he emphasized the seriousness of such misconduct, labelling it as unprofessional, and urged officers to refrain from engaging in such actions.

“Men and women wear uniforms only to go and see off their friends at the Airport. They pull their bags right from the car, and walk through checking, walk them through immigration and even security points all the way.

“When you disembark you see them lined up waiting for their friends, they take their bags. I have told the CG to send a message to them that it has to stop with immediate effect, and I mean immediate effect.”

“We will send plain clothes to go there, if an immigration officer is found around the arrival hall, or departure hall, engaging passengers please consider that you will be at home for a long time and that will be coming from me, not the CG. So, tell them,” he stated.

In addition, Mr Quartey urged the GIS officers to uphold professionalism, particularly in light of the upcoming 2024 general elections.

He stressed the importance of the GIS’s role in facilitating unbiased, free, and fair elections.

“We are seriously relying on you and please don’t misquote me; we are relying on you to perform your professional duty as GIS before, during and after the elections.

“We must ensure free, fair and transparent elections. That is why I am saying if you want to do politics let us know so we can make an application for you to join a political party. So please all of you mind your uniform and work for Ghana our motherland,” the Interior Minister stated.

Furthermore, he emphasized the necessity for officers to maintain strict border control to deter the illegal entry of undocumented individuals.
