The Executive Director of the National Service Scheme (NSS), Mr. Mustapha Ussif, has indicated that the Scheme had provided enough mechanisms and logistics to speed up registration process.
In an interview with the Director, he noted that with the recent adoption of an ICT driven system by the Scheme, it has made the registration process smoother and more convenient for prospective personnel, stating that “personnel who have booked appointments are not supposed to spend more than two hours at the registration centres.
On issues of illegality in the registration process, Mr. Ussif revealed that about 10 culprits are currently in the grip of the security in the nation’s capital for illegal pin generation and impersonation.
He therefore appealed to applicants to desist from dealing with unscrupulous individuals who promise them re-posting to their institution f choice at a huge cost.
He further urged the officers to avoid engaging in activities which would slow the process and subsequently mar the whole exercise.
He made public that GES has secured clearance to recruit all trained teachers currently doing their National Service with the scheme, starting from September this year.
He made this known on Monday, 26th August, 2019 when he paid a working visit to the NSS registration centre in the Northern Region.
The visit to the registration centre forms part of his nationwide tour to monitor the activities at the various centres and get first-hand information on some of the challenges and ways to rectify them.
The Director and his team has already toured the Greater Accra, Ashanti and Upper East regions.
