The National Service Scheme (NSS) has released postings for the 2021/22 service year.
A total of 81,081 graduates from accredited tertiary institutions have been deployed to various user agencies nationwide.
All registration processes are expected to be completed by Friday, November 5, 2021.
“Management further directs all graduates who have been duly posted and accepted by their user agencies to begin their national service on Monday, even as they undergo their validation exercise,” a statement signed by the Acting Executive Director, Osei Assibey Antwi, announced.
Prospective service personnel are required to visit the scheme’s website http://www.portal.nss.gov.gh for confirmation of their place of posting before they visit their agencies with their letters of appointment to be endorsed.
“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 the file name to clear them for posting,” the statement added.
To minimise large crowds at the registration centres amid the Covid-19, all posted national service personnel must schedule an appointment online and visit the registration centres on the scheduled date and time for validation with strict adherence to the Covid-19 protocol guidelines.
“This is a special provision implemented to facilitate service registration following the delay in the release of the postings in the wake of Covid-19.”
“All deployed national service personnel are entreated to accept their postings as part of their civic obligation to contribute meaningfully to national development,” NSS pleaded. Source: Christian Yalley
