The National Service Scheme (NSS) released the postings of about 80,000 graduates from the various public and private accredited tertiary institutions recently. As service personnel are making preparations in terms of documentation for the postings, the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) has sent vital information to all personnel who have their posting there.
According to the information which has been posted on the notice board of GRA in Accra, it reads, “All NSS personal are to note. You are to submit copies of both postings and appointment letters for further processing. Submission of only posting letters will not be accepted.” The information comes from the office of the Acting Human Resource at the GRA headquarters in Accra.
Some personnel put on hold
Some prospective service personnel have been placed on hold pending further verification as a result of discrepancies detected in their online registration details.
The National Service Scheme announced the 2020/2021 postings yesterday, Wednesday 6th, 2021. Personnel under the service are advised to accept their postings to wherever they have been posted to to contribute meaningfully to national development.
Currently, personnel are undergoing validation at the various district offices and will start the service come Monday, October 11, 2021. However, the registration ends on tomorrow, October 8, 2021.
In most cases, national service personnel refuse postings to remote areas,, especially those posted to public schools to teach. In my district alone, most of the personnel who were posted to there did not show up. They went to the secretariat to change the district.
Teachers in the remote areas are not enough, that is why the national service scheme always try to post able men and women there to assist in the teaching and learning. Imagine public schools in the villages getting NSS personnel every year. This would go a long way to help school children there.
