The National Service Scheme (NSS) has debunked claims of an increase in the allowances of National Service Personnel.
Speaking exclusively to Univers News, Public Relations Officer of the National Service Scheme (NSS), Armstrong Esaah highlighted that the NSS is not considering on increasing allowances any time soon thus such false news should be disregarded.
“These reports on Social Media should be treated as rumors and nothing else, I have not heard of this and it is not something the NSS is considering at this time” he said.
Mr. Esaah clearly stated that “the increase is not impossible but at this time of year it would not happen”.
In May 2017 the allowances of National Service personnel were increased from 350 Ghana cedis to 599.04 Ghana cedis and has not been increased till date.
The increase was announced in a letter in 2017 signed by Mr. Ussif Mustapha.
