The National Service Secretariat (NSS) has suspended the mandatory insurance policy for national service personnel replacing it with an optional insurance package for interested persons.
This was revealed by Ussif Mustapha, the Acting Executive Director of the National Service Scheme on Wednesday, December 13.
Mr Mustapha stated in a press release that the decision to make the insurance policy optional was taken at an emergency Executive Council meeting of the National Service Personnel Association (NASPA).
In view of that: “Management has therefore decided to suspend the mandatory monthly deductions of GHS15.00 from personnel allowances”.
“Management wishes to urge all national service personnel to remain calm as their concerns regarding the insurance policy are being addressed,” the statement added.
