National Service Personnel in the country have not been paid their GHC 559 stipend since January.
Although there were reports that their January allowance will be paid this month, there are no signs that the Scheme will be paying them soon.
To support personnel who were posted to his constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has donated two months of his salary to National Service Personnel.
Announcing the gesture, the Member of Parliament said “Earlier today I donated my entire two-month salary as MP (January and February 2022) to the North Tongu National Service Scheme District Office as my modest contribution to help cushion the 87 national service personnel posted to my beloved constituency who have not received their allowances from government for some three months”.
Adding that “The Scheme’s Director informs me all personnel have now received their direct MoMo transfers. I really wish I was in the position to do more to alleviate the plight of these dedicated personnel who gladly agreed to serve their country in my largely rural holy district”.
He used the opportunity to call on the government to expedite its steps towards paying the personnel who are serving the country.
“May I appeal to government to expedite action in paying all accumulated arrears owed our gallant but vulnerable national service personnel. In all sincerity, the paltry allowances of national service personnel shouldn’t be left out anytime monthly wages of public sector workers are processed for payment.”
