NSS personnel will receive their allowances soon


The National Service Secretariat has said efforts are being made to effect payment of allowances to service personnel “without any further delay”

A press statement issued by the acting Executive Director, Dr. Michael Kpessa-Whyte indicated that “following the on-going investigations at the NSS, processing of allowances for service personnel has been affected as steps are being taken to validate the national database of national service personnel as well as eliminate ghost names.”

Mr Whyte said “the ongoing BNI investigation has resulted in the discovery of some institutional challenges in the existing arrangements for effecting payments, which the management is working assiduously to address in order to prevent financial slippages.” According to him, “pay vouchers for service personnel at duty post have been received at the National Secretariat, and are currently going through the necessary audit validation processes for allowances to be paid.”

While commending the National Service Personnel for their patience, Mr. Kpessah Whyte also appealed to user organizations benefiting from the services and sacrifices of personnel to provide the necessary social support systems for service personnel to perform their duties effectively and efficiently.
