The National Service Scheme (NSS) has deployed 81,081 prospective service persons to user agencies across the country for the 2021/2022 service year.
This was indicated in a press release signed by the Acting Executive Director of the Scheme, Hon. Osei Assibey Antwi.
The deployed personnel have been asked to “log onto the Scheme’s website to check their placements and then proceed to the various user agencies to endorse their appointment letters before they book appointments online for registration and validation at designated centres in the regions.”
Meanwhile, the Scheme says that “some prospective service personnel have been placed on hold for further verification due to discrepancies detected in their online registration details.”
“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 enrolment 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,” part of the statement reads.
To minimize excessive crowds at the registration centers, all posted national service personnel are required to schedule an appointment online and visit the registration centres on the scheduled date and time for validation with strict adherence to the COVID-19 protocol guidelines.
Personnel are to complete their registration process by Friday, November 5, 2021.
Graduates who have been duly posted and accepted by their user agencies are to begin their national service on Monday, October 11, 221 even as they undergo the validation exercise.
The Scheme explained that the arrangement is to “facilitate service registration following the delay in the release of the postings in the wake of COVID-19 ”
