Reports of an increase in personnel allowance false – NSS clears the air


The National Service Secretariat  (NSS) has come out to clear the air of the news circulating about an increase in this year’s NSS personnel allowance from GHC559 to GHC669.

There were reports in some sections of the media suggesting that with immediate effect, the National Service Secretariat had increased allowances to personnel who are currently offering their services to the country.

But on the scheme’s Facebook page, it has denied such reports describing it as “fake” asking the general public and especially personnel to disregard the news.

The last time there was an increase in the allowances for National Service Personnel was in 2016 when the then John Dramani Mahama administration increased the allowance from GHC 350 to GHC 559.
