The National Service Scheme (NSS), after releasing the postings of over 81,000 graduates from accredited tertiary institutions for the 2021/2022 academic year says the personnel service will begin on Monday 11 October 2021.

When Will This Year Service End?

The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the National Service Secretariat, Armstrong Essah speaking in an interview on Joynews disclosed that the service will end in August 2022. He further said that September 2022 will be paid terminal leave for the service personnel.

 "National Service Secretariat(NSS) has announced for the national service personnel to start the national service from October this year but they are going to end the Service in August 2022 and then September becomes their paid terminal leave,” Mr Essah stated.

Asked if the allowance for service personnel has been increased, the spokesman for the Ghana Service Scheme said prospective personnel will be paid an amount of GH¢ 559.04. He said consultations are underway for an increase.

National Service year usually starts in September and ends in August, but amid the outbreak of the global coronavirus pandemic and its effect on the academic calendar, the postings delayed. However the Scheme on Wednesday, October 6, 2021, released the postings.

The Ghana National Service announcing the release of the graduates postings for this year, indicated that the national service postings of some graduates have been put on hold due to mistakes detected in their online registration details.

They said that, some personnels have been placed on hold so that they can do further verifications to correct any discrepancies in their online registration details. The National Scheme indicated that, they have sent notifications to the affected personnels.

In a released letter they stated that, It is important to note that postings registration should be completed by Friday, November 5, 2021. NSS urges graduates posted and accepted by user agencies to begin national service on Monday, October 11, 2021,” it said
