Those with stretch marks and bleached skin barred from recruitment in Ghana



The Ghanaian Immigration Service (GIS) has disqualified candidates with bleached skin and stretch marks from a massive recruitment exercise, BBC reports. 
A GIS spokesman told the BBC this was because people with such marks might bleed during the “strenuous” training. Some Ghanaians condemned the bar as sexist and unfair. 

Those with tattoos, dreadlocks and “bow legs” were also disqualified from the exercise. The GIS received some 84,000 applications for just 500 jobs. 
“The kind of work we do, it’s strenuous and the training is such that if you have bleached skin or surgical marks on your body during training exercises, you may incur some bleedings,” Superintendent Michael Amoako-Attah, said.

Candidates must undergo a medical and a full body check as part of the GIS recruitment process. It is the ban on stretch marks which has aroused most anger on social media. While others praised the move against women who lighten their skin.

Perm Sec settles with EFCC, forfeits N664m SURE-P fund (photos)



On Tuesday, the Federal High Court in Lagos, ordered the serving Permanent Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment, Clement Onubuogo, to permanently forfeit to the FG the sums of N664m and $137,680.11 found in his bank accounts. 
Justice Saliu Saidu gave the forfeiture order pursuant to an application to the same effect by the EFCC. Onubuogo did not oppose application. 
The EFCC told the court that the permanent secretary diverted the funds from SURE-P, a youth empowerment programme initiated by former President Goodluck Jonathan. 
At the Tuesday’s proceedings, Onubuogo’s lawyer, Mr. T.S. Awana, told Justice Saidu that his client had opted for an out-of-court settlement with the EFCC. 
The court had, last August, also ordered him to temporarily forfeit two landed properties. One of the properties was Onubuogo’s house, known as Clement Illoh’s Mansion located at Ikom Quarters, Issala-Azegba, Delta State; while the other, a hotel, is said to be located at No. 19, Madue Nwofor Street, off Achala Ibuzo Road, Asaba, Delta State.
