The Deputy Executive Director of the National Service Scheme (NSS) Gifty Oware Aboagye has disclosed that the allowance for 2021/22 will not be increased.
She made the revelation in an interview on Starr FM on Monday, September 13, 2021.
According to her, the budget did not capture allowance increment hence she doesn’t foresee an increment in the allowances.
“The budget has been read, the mid-year budget has been read and there was no increment so I don’t think there’ll be an increment in NSS allowance”.
However, she added that she has been advocating for an increment in the NSS allowance.
“Every year as NSS Boss, I make a case for an increment of allowance. As NSS boss, I lose nothing if a National Service Personnel is paid GHC1000”.
National Service Personnel have been earning GHC559.04 monthly since April 1, 2017.
