Every year, graduates from the various tertiary institutions are sent to various state and private institutions for their National Service.
The service is a mandatory requirement for every Ghanaian who has graduated from any form of tertiary education.
Days ago, social media started buzzing after people started posting about their postings for the national service.
However, it turns out that is not the actual postings for the upcoming service year.
According to the National Service Secretariat (NSS), the postings that were briefly accessed by some of this year’s applicants are not the actual postings.
The Deputy Director of the NSS, Dr Gitfy Oware-Aboagye told GTV in an interview that NSS was testing its platform which was why certain applicants were able to see postings.
“As a process of always wanting to see how our interface looks like, we opened our interface,” she said.
She said the service has not released the postings since most of the final year students are still in school.
The strike by the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) caused a delay in the academic calendar of most of the public universities in the country. Currently, final year students at the University of Ghana and the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology are still writing their final exams.
Until the final year students are officially done with their exams, they cannot start their national service.
It is for this reason that the NSS has also delayed in realising this year’s postings which should have been out by now and applicants preparing to start service in September.
Dr Oware-Aboagye said when the postings are actually released, all the applicants will receive an SMS to that effect.
