We will not repost you - Service Secretariat sounds caution
The National Service Secretariat (NSS) has issued a caution to all deployed personnel to desist from looking forward to reposting. According to the secretariat, it is incumbent on national sevice personnel to abide by their posting no matter the district they find themselves in.
In a report first made by mynewsgh.com, the head of the Ashanti Regional directorate of the NSS, Mr Opoku Mensah said the strict adherence to posting is important for the smooth running of the programme. In a campaign dubbed, “Let’s all of us go and serve the country, everywhere is Ghana” the NSS hopes that Ghanaians would consider the scheme as their national duty. It charged people to embrace the patriotism that comes with service.
According to the Ashanti Regional Director of NSS, people like pregnant women, nursing mothers, and married women who need special attention from their husband would be considered for reposting. He went on: “Let me make it clear that reposting is not a feature of National service program. It is peculiar to certain people which are bias to women”.
He continued: “These are the people and not those in good condition seeking for reposting. No No ….., let’s all of us go and serve the country everywhere is Ghana. Let’s go and serve the country. But sometimes people complain of being posted to villages. Let’s go and serve our nation.
National service personnel posted this year are expected to begin work September 3rd to serve in the various sectors both private and public.
