The Minister for the Interior, Mr Ambrose Dery, has inaugurated a four-storey residential accommodation for the Ghana Immigration Service at Dadieso in the Western North Region.
Mr Dery said the provision of accommodation for the security services has been a priority to the government, adding that the government was committed to providing decent accommodation for all the security services in the country.
The Interior Minister thanked the Paramount Chief of Dadieso for releasing the land for the project.
“I will also like to thank the Comptroller General of the Ghana Immigration Service for providing the needed leadership and supervision for this project to become a reality,” he added.
The Comptroller General, Mr Kwame Asuah Takyi, on his part said the accommodation has come as a huge relief to the officers, who are accommodated in rented apartments scattered across the town, saying it would facilitate easy mobilization and deployment of personnel in times of emergency.
Mr Takyi urged the Commanders, who will be appointed following the commissioning, to ensure regular maintenance of the facility.
He urged the officers to work together to defeat the threats of terrorism and violent extremism.
