Armed Forces cautions public against fake press release on recruitment

The Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) have requested that the public ignore a bogus document that has been circulated on social media and claims to be an enlistment or recruitment announcement.

It recommended those looking to join the military to only use the recognized and official avenues employed by GAF to publicize its recruitment and enrollment drives.
The Daily Graphic and Ghanaian Times newspapers, according to a statement made in Accra by Lieutenant Colonel A Marteye on behalf of the Director General Public Relations, were the conduits.

It claimed that the phony press release circulated on social media instructed interested candidates who desired to join GAF to send their summary report and contact details to the phony email address [email protected].

The phony document also referred to a fictitious news release from the Finance Ministry to GAF regarding delaying the hiring of new officers across all sectors owing to government funding constraints.

The nearest military facility or police station should be notified of any phony internet links or illegal actions, it advised.

It stated that the public’s assistance was also requested in order to help stop the nationwide threat of recruitment fraud.
