Prospective National Service personnel have been advised to confirm their respective posting at the National Service Scheme (NSS) website, and ensure that they begin their civic obligation on Monday, October 11, 2021.
This was contained in a statement signed by the acting Executive Director of the Scheme, Osei Assibey Antwi.
A total of 81,081 graduates from accredited institutions across the country have been deployed to undertake the task.
“It is important to note that posting registration should be completed by Friday, November 5, 2021,” it noted.
“Prospective service personnel should log on to the scheme’s website http://www.portal.nss.gov.gh to confirm the specifics of their placements before visiting their respective user agencies to endorse their letters of appointment,” it advised.
Management of the scheme has therefore encouraged all posted service personnel to schedule an appointment online and visit the registration centers on the scheduled date and time for validation, with strict adherence to the COVID-19 protocol guidelines.
The move is aimed at minimising excessive crowds at the registration centres.
“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 NSS noted in the press release.
The statement also disclosed that due to some discrepancies detected in the online registration details of some students, their placement had been placed on hold for further verification.
“Notifications have already been sent to the affected personnel and they are hereby directed to visit any regional office of the scheme with a copy of the 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,” it said.
