The Member of Parliament (MP) for the Effutu constituency, Alexander Afenyo-Markin has resourced the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) with a huge donation of brand-new office equipment aimed at easing the challenges facing them

The items include air conditioners, desktop computers, efficient printers, comfortable swivel chairs for the staff, study file cabinets for organized document management, reliable landline telephones, and well-equipped workstations and among others.

Afenyo-Markin who double as the Deputy Majority Leader of Ghana’s Parliament, also promised an ultra-modern Immigration Service office which, according to him will be ready and commissioned on May this year and pediatric ward as well.

“I want to make Effutu Municipal immigration Service a welcome place to be. I have been in a public service before so I know what it is when you get to the office, you have nothing to sit on, the heat and even don’t have computers to work on.  It’s rather demonizing when you are public service and tools for work are unavailable. So by the grace of God I have made all these items available without leaving a single thing out to make the sector better place to work with” Afenyo-Markin stated.

 “I humbly acknowledge work of Ghana Immigration services that they do in the Municipality and I will continue to support them”. He added

The Commander of Effutu Immigration Service, Superintendent Desmond Mensah believed Afenyo-Markin’s gesture would help them work effectively and efficiently in the delivery of the mandate in the Municipality.

“The municipality has a lot of Educational institutions and as a result it is attracting foreigners from all over the world who are in such of quality education and as a result of these, we are here as agency under the interior ministry to provide students with permit and extention for all foreign students who are here to take their education” he added.

On his part, the Deputy Commissioner of GIS and the Central Regional Commander of GIS DCOI Eric Afari overwhelmed with MPs donations and saluted MP for his bold initiative.

“MPs presentation is so monumental and I know his kind gesture will surly transform our operations and make the sector very visible in the Municipality” he said.
