In Ghana, one of our main source of funds for development comes from taxes paid. In the country, the agency tasked for doing that is the Custom Excise and Preventive Service (CEPS).
So for the country and its efforts it puts in to ensure that all citizens pay their taxes, the CEPS official cannot be overlooked.
Aside that, they also ensure that goods are not smuggled into the country. This ensures that illegal substances and goods do not circulate within the country. Hence, aside taxes, they ensure safety through the performance of their duties.
Put all these aside and you will realize that like all other public agencies, they also provide employment. So if you are a graduate and you want to serve the country, working for CEPS is something you may want to consider.
