batch will also serve in modules such as Educational Support, Agribusiness, Urban Traffic Management, Urban Sanitation
Management, Community Health, Rural Development, Private Sector Support, and General Administration in the various
Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Assemblies, and other User Agencies across the country.

The statement emphasized that the 2015/2016 service will begin on Tuesday, 1st September, 2015. It therefore called on prospective
national service personnel to log onto to check their placements and proceed to their regional postings to go through registration processes at the
Scheme’s regional offices across the country before Tuesday, 25th August, 2015.

The statement concludes that Management reiterates its earlier position that it will not encourage change of postings and therefore
urged all prospective national service personnel to accept their placements as part of their contributions towards building a
prosperous nation.
