The Regional Commander, Kotoka International Airport (KIA), Assistant Commissioner of Ghana Immigration Service, Edith Penelope Arhin, said, in their quest to reach all the 18 Regional Commands, Metropolitan, and District office with their policies, management as part of its policy is decentralizing operations and functions to be a reflection of what is done at the national headquarters.
According to her, “it is in this regards that the Public Affairs Department has also been decentralized to all the Regional and some key Sector Commands to better disseminate information about GIS and educate the public on our activities. Hence the creation of the Public Affairs Unit at the KIA Regional Command.”
