The National Service Secretariat (NSS) has directed Service Personnel to report to work tomorrow, Monday, May 4, 2020.

This was contained in a release Sunday morning after earlier communication from the Deputy Director of the Secretariat, Gifty Oware, discredited a directive for personnel to return to work as espoused in an earlier communique.

The earlier communique, according to the Deputy NSS Director, was a fake one adding that its content should be disregarded by the public.

In an interview with ABC News yesterday, Gifty Oware said “We have not issued any statement to that effect. It is fake and we are going to issue a statement on that matter.”

On Sunday, May 3, the NSS issued a release directing all personnel to return to their posts on Monday, May 4.

“Following the exhaustion of the one-month mandatory paid-leave granted to all national service personnel which took effect from March 26, 2020, to April 30, 2020, and in compliance with the Government of Ghana precautionary directives in the wake of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Management of the National Service Scheme (NSS), today, May 03, 2020, directs all national service personnel to resume their national service duty with their respective user agencies effective Monday, May 04, 2020.

However, service personnel who work with private companies are to liaise with their Human Resource heads to ascertain if they can resume work,” portions of the release state.

The Secretariat further directed all personnel to wear nose masks while reporting to work to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

They added that “Management of NSS, therefore, appeals passionately to all user agencies to as much as possible operationalise a shift system to reduce the frequency of human contact.”
