As Akrasi stands by vow to round up drug money sponsored politicos who retry 2008 coke campaign and places 200 recruits on standby for crash jungle warfare training while 250 additional commandos are to receive appointment letter this year

There is a Rambo aura at the Narcotics Control Board (NACOB) where the tough-talking Executive Secretary, Yaw Akrasi Sarpong, has placed 200 new recruits on standby for soon-to-commence field training at the Jungle Warfare School in Achiase in the Eastern Region.

The 200 recruits, who constitute the first batch of 450 new staff that NACOB is employing to beef up personnel will also undergo training at the Bureau of National Investigations Training School as part of a honing process for the dangerous job of drug combating.

According to reports, the first batch of recruits go their appointment letters in December, 2011. A second batch of the 250 extra recruits will be issued their appointment letters within the year.

By the completion of the new recruitments, NACOB is aiming at transforming from the comatose spectacle that it was during the erstwhile Kufuor regime, when cocaine nearly became another staple in Ghana.

NACOB offices will spring up in all the 10 regions of the country, with a base staff capacity of at least 15 operatives at each regional post.

Reports states that the Public Services Commission was looking at the Board's scheme of service in order to help it fashion in better on.

Of the first batch of recruits, at lease four are lawyers.

In addition to adding to the general muscle that Mr. Akrasi has brought to bear on NACOB operations, the recruits wil be on a special call in December to ensure that 'Crazy' Akrasi's promise to ensure that narcotic cash is not splurged on political campaigns, as was the case in 2008, is kept.
