Leaders of public and private institutions have been admonished by Speaker of Parliament Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin not to reduce National Service Personnel (NSP) to errand-runners.

Mr. Bagbin underlined the importance of the national service requirement, emphasizing its crucial role in these employees’ development. He emphasized that this important time shouldn’t be wasted on unimportant chores that don’t advance their development.

“I implore my brothers and sisters, who hold positions of leadership in both public and private sector organizations, to refrain from using service employees as messengers or “errand boys and girls.”Do not waste this year, as it is really important for their development, he advised.

The theme of Mr. Bagbin’s speech at the National Service Scheme (NSS) Golden Jubilee Jubilee launch in Accra was “National Service at 50: Repositioning the Scheme for a Sustainable National Development.”

He bemoaned situations in which staff members were mistreated and frequently did not have even the most basic office seating arrangements. He underlined how important it was for them to use this time to prepare for the working world.

In response to the problems facing the country, Mr. Bagbin promoted sustainable solutions and named NSS as a means of developing the next wave of leaders, troubleshooters, and change agents.

He underlined the necessity of funding NSS operations in order to instill in the youth a sense of duty towards the country.

The NSS Executive Director, Mr. Osei Assibey Antwi, stated that the Scheme has been successful in increasing the number of workers deployed to support the public service, health, and education sectors. He revealed that some 65,000 staff members were assigned to classrooms this year.

In reference to the agricultural sector, Mr. Assibey Antwi emphasized that NSS had obtained 20,000 acres of land for a number of initiatives with the backing of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
