NSS personnel to picket at Flagstaff House

The Concerned National Service Personnel Association of Ghana, has threatened to picket the Flagstaff House next week Monday, if the government fails to pay them their allowances.

The group told Rainbow Radio that the government has failed to pay service personnel two months into their service, a situation that is negatively affecting its members.

Convener of the group William Agbodo, said, “Since we started service from 4th September, nothing has been done by the government so far to ensure that our monthly allowance is paid.

They keep telling us to exercise a little patience but up till now, there is no hope that they will be paying us soon. Most of us come from far away to our work places, and we always have to walk a long distance to get to our places.

“If we come to realization that nothing will be done, then we will be compelled to picket at the Flagstaff House. All National Service persons are willing to partake in such activities and we know that the government will be willing to listen to us.”
