As part of a working visit to the facility, a group from the Strengthen Border Security in Ghana (SBS-Gh), visited the Immigration Service Academy and Training School together with the “International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD)”
Mr. Marco Bordignon (Project Manager) headed the delegation, which was accompanied by; Eunice Adofo Boanya (project officer-ICMPD), and Chief Superintendent Haruna Alhassan (GIS)
The European Union within the framework of the “Strengthening Border Security in Ghana” (SBS Ghana) project, funded by the European Union Emergency Trust Fund for Africa (EUTF), donated 100 books and shelves to the library of the Ghana Immigration Service Academy and Training School at a short ceremony in Assin Fosu.
The books donated comprise a comprehensive list of books on cross cutting issues on immigration, international border management, borders security, leadership, teamwork, international law and management. Bookshelves were also provided as storage spaces for books.
The grant was in line with the first component of Strengthen Border Security (SBS) in Ghana, which includes assisting to reduce irregular migration and boost border security, as well as ramping up GIS capacity.
In a speech read on behalf of Mr. Marco Bordignon (Project Manager); Mrs Eunice Adofo, who donated the books, praised the school for its continuous development of young officers into leadership positions and highlighted the importance of continuous learning at all times, saying, “It is our hope that this extensive collection of books would profit generations of institution, students, and researchers from across Ghana interested in the field of international Border Management, Border Security, and other cross-cutting topics of interest.”
We encourage you to continue to feed your desire to read and to be open to learning.
Receiving the items on behalf of the Comptroller General, the Commandant (ACI Alex Adu) and the CO (Chief Superintendent Kwabena A. Koduah) expressed gratitude and relayed it as a small contribution in expanding the Academy’s library plaAswhich is a key focus on school development. “I appreciate the thoughtful gift, and I must state that the Academy has substantial plans to open and engage its library to the student body. Some of these donated publications genuinely form the backbone of this school’s leadership, migration, and legal areas. It goes without saying that the school slogan ‘Knowledge, Integrity, and Leadership’ is a direct reflection of the contents of this book. This has mostly been the primary emphasis of the Comptroller General (Asuo Kwame Takyi)”. Once again we say a big thank you!
