The Management of the National Service Scheme, NSS, says it has released the first batch of placements for 53,604 national service personnel for 2015/2016 service year as part of reforms of its general operations.
According to a statement signed by the Acting Executive Director, Dr. Michael Kpessa-Whyte, the service personnel have been deployed into various service modules including Educational Support, Agribusiness, Urban Traffic Management, Urban Sanitation Management, Community Health, Rural Development, Private Sector Support, and General Administration in the various Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Assemblies, and other User Agencies across the country.
The statement noted that the modules have been developed in line with the scheme’s objectives to meet the developmental and manpower needs of the country.
It therefore called on prospective national service personnel to log onto www.nss.gov.gh to check their placements.
The statement further emphasized that management will not encourage change of postings and therefore urged all prospective national service personnel to be prepared to accept their placements as part of their contributions towards building a prosperous nation.
It would be recalled that the scheme announced early release of placements to afford national service personnel enough time to prepare and take up their placements in September, 2015.
