False! Local Government Service is NOT Recruiting

A ten-page document titled Local Government Recruitment has been making rounds on social media. This document purports to advertise vacant positions in the service such as Procurement Assistants, Assistant Programmers, Assistant Budget Analyst Assistant Internal Auditors and Assistant Environmental Health Officers (just to mention a few) within the service in the following regions Brong Ahafo, Central, Northern, Upper East, Upper West, Volta and Western Regions.

Verdict: Completely False

Explanation: The document, according to  a news release from the Office of the Head of the Local Government Service dated June 22, 2020, with reference number OHLGS/DE/O5/O1 states that it has not issued any recruitment advert. The service has therefore asked the public to disregard the advert.

“The Service wishes to assure the public that when such opportunities turn up in future, due processes and procedures will be followed and be informed accordingly through appropriate channels,” part of the statement said.
