The insurance policy for national service personnel has now been made optional for interested national service personnel who wish to sign onto the policy.
A statement signed by Mr. Ussif Mustapha, the Acting Executive Director of the National Service Scheme and copied to the Ghana News Agency, on Wednesday, said the decision was taken at an Emergency Executive Council Meeting of the National Service Personnel Association (NASPA).
The meeting held broad consultations with major stakeholders on the policy, and how best it would serve the interest of national service personnel.
‘’Management has therefore decided to suspend the mandatory monthly deductions of GHȼ15.00 from personal allowances.
‘’Management wishes to urge all national service personnel to remain calm as their concerns regarding the insurance policy are being addressed’’, the statement said.
