Six former workers of the Ministry of the Interior have been honoured for their hard work and service to Ghana and the Civil Service.

The six, who retired from active service between 2015 and 2018 were presented with Citations and gift tokens as their reward.

Presenting the citations on Friday, September 20, 2019 in Accra, Mr. Ambrose Dery, Minister for the Interior, commended them for their hard work and services to Ghanaians in particular and to Mother Ghana in general and urged them to continue living exemplary lives as they are now role models for the future generations.

“Working as a civil servant is delicate and challenging, these six former staff have done a great job and it is only fair that we acknowledge them.” He said.

He added that they all deserved the honour and that each and every one of them should be very proud of their hard work.
