National Service Personnel call for increase in their allowances

The National Service Personnel Association (NASPA), wants an increase in the monthly allowances paid to personnel.

The association wants the Acting Director of the Scheme, Dr. Kpesah White, to address their concerns immediately.

According to NASPA, the current allowances do not correspond with the current cost of living following increases in  utility tariffs and transport fares.

Speaking to Citi News, the Eastern Regional President of NASPA, Ato Brown Oyemam, asked the acting Director of the Scheme and managers of the economy, to show good faith by ensuring that the supplementary budget to be read soon by the Minister of Finance captures their demands.He said they are also suffering due to “the current economic crisis” and that “it shouldn’t take us to point to the fact that service personnel board vehicles to their work places.”


“…These allowances are supposed to commensurate with the increment of taxes and prices of products. But it’s stagnant at GHc350. We are in this country and we know that utility prices have gone up. Service personnel rent their own accommodation and we pay utility bills. Utility bills are not subsidized. We think that if there is an increase in fuel and utility prices and other amenities, its right for service personnel to also benefit in that regard,” he added.
