The National Service Secretariat (NSS) has deployed 81,081 graduates to various institutions across the country to begin their one-year mandatory national service from Monday, October 11, 2021.
It has, however, put on hold the placement of some prospective service personnel for the 2021/2022 service year,following discrepancies detected intheir online registration details.
A statement issued by Osei Assibey Antwi, NSS Acting Executive Director, in Accra yesterday asked the prospective personnelto visit the NSS website for confirmation of their placement and have their letters of appointment endorsed.
It directed that all posting registration processes should be completed by Friday, November 5, 2021.
On those whose posting had been withheld, it said notifications had already been sent to the affected personnel, and they were to visit any regional office of the scheme with a copy ofthe 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.
As part of measures to minimise large crowds at the registration centres, the statement, said all posted national service personnel were required to 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”, the statement said.
Meanwhile, all deployed national service personnel have been entreated to accept their postings as part of their civic obligations to contribute meaningfully to national development.
