NSS Deploy Over 85,000 Personnel For 2018/2019 Service Year

The National Service Scheme has released postings for the 2018/2019 service year.

Addressing the media at the Secretariat on Wednesday 18 July 2018, the Executive Director of the scheme, Mustapha Ussif said, “the Scheme in accordance with the Ghana National Service Scheme Act, 1980 (Act 426), has deployed over 85,705 personnel to the Agriculture and Agro Business, Education Support, Business Services, Community Health, Rural Development, Administrative Support, NSS Support, Urban Traffic and Urban Sanitation.”

He added, “The Scheme is guided by government’s priority areas and policy direction to deploy National Service Personnel (NSPs). We have therefore deployed Personnel in accordance with these set objectives to meet the requirements of our user agencies and capacities of the various regions to contain the numbers.”

“We also considered issues such as acute health conditions, married women, people on study leave and persons with disabilities,” he added. 

The Scheme also deployed 500 personnel to a new module called the Entrepreneurship and Innovation module. This module will ensure the 500 personnel are deployed to acquire direct entrepreneurship skills under the supervision of skilled and well established entrepreneurs in Agriculture and ICT. 

The Scheme in collaboration with Microfinance and Small Loans Centre (MASLOC) and National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Plan (NEIP) will accept business proposals from these personnel and assist them with the needed capital to enable them start business skills acquired.

Over 5000 personnel have also been deployed to support the Planting for Food and Jobs across our various districts in the country. This Scheme believes will help the flagship program improves on the previous year.

Service personnel are expected take advantage of the new automated system to print their appointment letters from Friday and proceed to book an appointment on the Scheme’s website before one can report to register at the various registration centers. This automated system is expected to check the overcrowding and long queues witnessed at the various registration centers.  

The Scheme this year suspended the application of over 1200 personnel for suspicion of fraud, stolen identification, stolen pin codes, fake National Identification cards and inconsistent information and pictures to help sanitize the process.  

Personnel are expected to successfully go through their registration smoothly and starting from Friday, 20th July to Friday, 24th August. They are also supposed to report at their various places of service on Monday, 3rd September to begin their mandatory service after successfully going through the registration process.
