Renowned statesman Dr Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe has advised the upcoming president following the December 7, 2024, elections to put an end to protocol recruitments in security services.
He stressed that such practices compromise the professionalism of security personnel, affecting institutions such as the Armed Forces, Police Service, Prison Service, and Immigration.
In an interview on Ghana Tonight, he addressed the prevalent issue of corruption in the Public Service, highlighting that it has escalated to the point where appointees misuse state funds for personal gains, including the construction of houses in upscale areas like Peduase.
In the Eastern Region of south Ghana, in the Akuapim South Municipal District, sits the town of Peduase.
For this reason, he has counselled the victor of the December 7, 2024, presidential contest to look into all public employees, particularly those who were appointed by the government.
“Whoever wins this nation’s election the following year has to form a commission of inquiry to look into anyone who has worked in public service, especially in government.
Many of the things they have done are well known to the public. After all, humans are the ones who constructed the buildings in Peduase and everywhere else you can think of. Thus, they must realize that they are known and not assume the opposite,” he said.
The next president should make sure that all ongoing projects are finished, according to Dr. Nyaho Tamakloe.
“Any incoming government ought to set aside recent advancements. He proposed that the government work to finish all of the unfinished projects that are scattered throughout the nation, which include dams, hospitals, and clinics, among other things.
