The National Service Scheme (NSS) has urged President Nana Akufo-Addo to promptly approve the Ghana National Service Authority Bill 2024. This action is intended to provide the secretariat with authority and independence, as announced by the NSS during the policy launch on April 15, 2024.

Osei Assibey Antwi, the Executive Director of NSS, highlighted the importance of enhancing and adequately resourcing the National Service scheme to effectively oversee the mobilization and deployment of personnel.He fervently implored President Akufo-Addo to endorse the bill currently under his consideration.Mr. Antwi stated that the new law will enable the authority to enhance existing programs like the NSS teaching model and NSS MSME accounting age.

This enhancement will strengthen the NSS scheme’s reputation as one of the top choices in the West African and African region for deploying service personnel.

“The National Service scheme beyond this policy must be strengthened, capacitated, and significantly resourced to regulate the mobilization and deployment of personnel. I strongly believe that this can be done by upgrading the scheme from its status to a more noble and standardized institution. In this regard, I wish to make a passionate appeal to the President that the Ghana National Service Authority Bill 2024, currently before Mr. President, will be approved. Mr. President, the new law will grant the authority the opportunity to expand existing programs such as the NSS teaching model and NSS MSME accounting age

President Akufo-Addo, in his response, urged stakeholders to back the scheme in accomplishing its goals. He voiced his belief that with the enforcement of the new policy document, the NSS scheme will assume an even more significant role in shaping Ghana’s future and empowering its youth to realize their full potential.

“These interventions will solidify the NSS scheme’s position as one of the best in the West African and African region for deploying service personnel. I urge stakeholders to support the scheme in achieving its objectives. Let us embrace the new changes, focus, and face of the NSS. I’m confident that with the implementation of this new policy document, the NSS scheme will play an even more vital role in shaping the future of our nation and empowering our youth to fulfil their potential.”.
