Deputy Executive Director of the National Service Scheme (NSS), Dr. Gifty Oware-Aboagye, has advised the 2021/2022 National Service Personnel to accept postings to different regions in order to learn diverse cultures.
The National Service Secretariat (NSS) has released postings for the 2021/2022 service year.
In all, 81,081 graduates have been posted to enrol in various agencies across the country and begin their one-year mandatory national service from Monday, October 11, 2021.
The NSS Secretariat directed that all posting registration processes be completed by Friday, November 5, 2021.
In a statement, Management of National Service Scheme (NSS) said it had deployed a total of 81,081 graduates from accredited tertiary institutions who enrolled for the 2021/2022 national service to various user agencies across the country.
The Secretariat further announced that, it has put on hold the placement of some prospective service personnel following discrepancies detected in their online registration details.
“Management wishes to inform the general public that, some prospective service personnel have been placed on hold for further verification due to discrepancies detected in their online registration details.”
“Notifications have already been sent to the affected personnel, and they are hereby directed to visit any regional office of the scheme with a copy of the enrollment forms, student ID, any national ID and a soft copy of their passport picture saved with their NSS number as file name to clear them for posting,” the secretariat said in a statement.
Speaking to host of Atinka FM’s AM Drive Kaakyire Ofori Ayim on the National Service Postings and matters arising, Deputy Executive Director of the National Service Scheme, Dr. Gifty Oware-Aboagye noted that a peculiar issue affecting the NSS posting each year has to do with personnel effecting a change in service posting citing proximity as reasons.
“ From Paga to Axim, every corner of Ghana is part of the country and so when you are posted to anywhere I believe it is important for you to go. What some of these service personnel forget is that going out of your comfort zone affords you the opportunity to learn diverse cultures,” Dr. Gifty Oware-Aboagye told Kaakyire Ofori Ayim.
