The National Service Scheme (NSS) has released postings of 77,962 prospective service persons for the 2019/2020 service year.
They have been posted to user agencies in all the 16 regions across Ghana to undertake their mandatory one-year national service.
Out of the number, 66,348, representing 85.1%, were posted to public institutions whereas 11,614, constituting 14.9%, were deployed to private user agencies.
About 6,000 persons were deployed to support the Agricultural Sector including the government’s Planting for Food and Job Policy.
Also, 2,000 personnel have been deployed to support the introduction of the Entrepreneurship program in poultry production with a focus on all the value chains in poultry production.
The Greater Accra Region received the highest number of 29,057 service persons, while the Ashanti and Brong Ahafo Regions followed with 13,628 and 5,774, respectively.
The Upper East and Upper West regions however recorded low requests but the Scheme says that it is working to ‘shore up the numbers in the two regions with late registrations and postings in due course’.
Prospective service persons are to visit the Scheme’s website to check their posting.
