NSS: National Service Period Extended For Six More Months

Management of the National Service Scheme has offered to grant an optional extension of six months to service personnel still at duty post who wish to be redeployed for additional duties in the extension period.

This comes as the Scheme declares the month of August 2016, as the annual leave month for all 2015/2016 national service personnel prior to the official end of the service.

In a statement signed and issued in Accra, the Acting Executive Director of the Scheme, Dr Michael Kpessa-Whyte said only current service personnel who opt for the extension and apply online at www.nss.gov.gh will be considered for the redeployment.

He said service personnel who are willing to gain additional work experience through service by working with different user agencies are to visit the Scheme’s website and apply before Friday, August 19, 2016.

The statement further indicated that “redeployment of personnel for the purposes of the extension will be mainly to public sector user agencies including educational institutions especially schools, the National Commission for Civic Education, Electoral Commission and various units and departments within the District Assemblies across the country.”
