Enlistment Into Ghana Armed Forces – Do Not Be Defrauded
The Ghana Armed Forces has commenced the process to enlist eligible Ghanaians into its officer corps. The advert to this effect was published in the Ghanaian Times and the Daily Graphic recently. All the three services, namely the Army, Navy and the Air Force will select qualified personnel to fill vacancies in their respective services.
The first step in applying for enlistment is to purchase a scratch card from designated post offices across the country at a cost of GHC 70.00 (Seventy Ghana Cedis). It is important to note the Ghana Armed Forces no longer sell forms for enlistment or recruitment.
After the purchase of the card, the applicant must go on-line using the address www.gafrecruitment.com to fill in all the required information needed. Applicants must note they must enter the serial number of the card, pin code and select their preferred arm of service, type of commission, upload photocopies of all relevant certificates and click on submit.
After clicking on the submit button, an instant e-mail and text message would be sent to the applicant. This will include the applicants unique system generated Identification number. Print and keep a copy as that would be required after the applicant is shortlisted. The closing date for on-line application is 8 February 2015.
The attention of the Ghana Armed Forces has been drawn to the fact that some unscrupulous persons are going round duping unsuspecting applicants with the promise of getting them enlisted into the Armed Forces. It must be noted that no individual or group of persons can help anybody since the process is as transparent as possible. Anybody who presents himself as such must be reported immediately to the police for his arrest and prosecution.
