The Management of the National Service Scheme (NSS) has reacted to an allegation made by the outgoing Tema Metro President of the National Service Personnel Association (NASPA), Hamidu Apandago Mahamadu during a TV3 morning show programme on Thursday, January 25, 2024, that service personnel in the Central Region were paid GH¢155 as allowance instead of the approved GH¢715.57, describing the remarks as untrue.

He also alleged that the Central Regional Executive, Cape Coast Metro President wrote to management to address the matter, “but they didn’t get any response to that.” These allegations, the NSS noted, have since gained wide publications in the media.

According to the NSS Management, “service personnel in the Central Region have been paid their full monthly allowances and arrears. Management has also not received any letter from the Central Regional Executive on any matter concerning unpaid allowances.”

The statement from the NSS has described the allegations as “false, unfounded, and malicious, and must be disregarded with the contempt they deserve.”

Management of the Scheme has advised NASPA Executives at all levels “to take advantage of the structured channels of communication available to them through their constitution to address issues that are unclear to them, and should avoid making wild and unsubstantiated allegations and effusions in the media space.”

Management has given the assurance that “it will continue to operate an open-door policy with NASPA and support its activities in the interest of all our cherished and hardworking National Service Personnel.”
