The Management of the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) has taken the necessary steps to upgrade its Techiman District Command to the status of a Regional Command.
This was disclosed when the Comptroller-General of Immigration (CGI), Mr. Kwame Asuah Takyi paid a two-day working visit to the Techiman District Command of the GIS in the newly created Region, Bono East.
Mr. Kwame Asuah Takyi called on the District Commander, Superintendent Michael Brewu Ampofo for firsthand information on the administrative and operational challenges in the Region.
He later inspected facilities of the Command and addressed a durbar of Service personnel. He admonished them to exercise a great deal of discipline and good judgments in the discharge of their duties.
He commended the service personnel for their dedication to duty despite the challenges they were confronted with and urged them not to renege on their intelligence gathering responsibilities.
The CGI assured the Service personnel of management committed to furnishing the Command with the necessary resources and logistics that would befit the status of a Regional Command.
Mr. Kwame Asuah Takyi expressed gratitude to the Municipal Assembly for giving the Service additional offices at both the Techiman and Kintampo Command.
He ended his working visit to the Bono East Region with a call on a sister security agency, Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) where he interacted with personnel of the GNFS and advised them to collaborate and support each other towards ensuring security in the Region.
Techiman is the capital for the newly created Bono East Region. The region was created after the people in that area gave an overwhelming endorsement for its creation during a referendum in December 2018.
