Middlemen Have Not Been Tasked To Charge Enlistment Fees – GAF Warns

The Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) have cautioned the public to desist from paying illegal monies to middlemen or agents, promising to secure placement in the Military Academy for potential applicants as enlistment has commenced.

GAF, in a statement issued on October 30, emphasized that middlemen have not been employed to take illegal monies, nor is the Armed Forces charging any fees for enlistment.

“GAF wishes to remind the general public that it does not employ middlemen or charge fees for enlistment. The public is therefore strongly advised to desist from paying monies to any person(s) who present themselves as agents or middlemen with the promise to help potential applicants enter the Ghana Military Academy”.

“The Ghana Armed Forces further wishes to state that individuals who present themselves as middlemen, intermediaries, or agents demanding payment in order to assist any candidate(s) should be reported to the nearest Military Installation or Police Station. In the same vein, interested applicants who choose to pay monies to purported agents for help are equally culpable in the fraudulent act”, the statement signed by A. Amarteye, Lieutenant Colonel for Director General Public Relations for GAF, stated.
