The Immigration Service in Ghana says all ladies that have stretch marks, bleached skins and surgery cuts will be dismissed automatically from their recruitment program, BBC reports.
Michael Amoako-Attah, who happens to the agency’s spokesman said the selection criteria was needed to ensure the staff’s safety and also their wellbeing:
“If you have bleached skin or surgical marks on your body during training exercises you may incur some bleeding and that wouldn’t help or augur well for the safety of the applicant because we have seen it before and as much as possible we should avoid re-occurrence.”
