Sekondi 13 Oct, GNA – The Western Regional
Director of National Service Scheme (NSS), Mr Okatakyie Amankwah Afrifa has
said the delay in the payments of National Service Personnel Allowance (NSPA)
is due to the delays in the submissions of monthly reports by personnel coupled
with others administrative functions.

He said the bureaucratic systems of government
to disburse funds to pay National ‘Service Personnel (NSP) was another
challenge causing the delay in the payment of the allowance.

Mr Afrifa who disclosed this to the Ghana News
Agency in an interview explained that payments of NSPA went through a lot of
processes before it could be paid, adding that some e-zwich cards of service
personnel were yet to be approved due to the unconsolidated banking system in
the country.

He in this regard urged service personnel to
check their dashboard through the NSS portal to make sure their e-zwich
accounts were approved before payment of NSP allowance was effected.

He said the inability of some managers to
endorse monthly duty forms of personnel for early processing of the allowance
was another factor for the delay in payment of the allowance.

He urged them to note that their first and
foremost loyalty was to the state,  which
was stipulated in the 1992 constitution of Ghana that all citizens who undergo
any tertiary institution accredited by national accreditation board must serve
the nation by undertaking national service obligation to the state in
accordance with the provision of Act 426.

Mr Afrifa therefore advised service personnel
to exercise patience and work hard at their various stations to earn their
allowances.
