The Management of the Ghana National Service Scheme (NSS) has denied reports indicating it has postponed the 2020/2021 National Service which usually begins September to a later date amid the outbreak of COVID-19.
This comes after some online news portals published that the NSS amid the outbreak of the novel coronavirus and temporal closure of schools has suspended one year mandatory National Service which normally begins in September every year until further notice.
The fake website claims the Scheme is considering to make the month of September an annual leave period for all service personnel and also to enable personnel use that period for biometric and other registrations.
However, the management of the Ghana National Service (NSS) when contacted by Georgeweb.org has debunked such information, saying it has not issued any statement to that effect.
It added that all official communication channels will be utilized if any information is required to reach the members of the general public and personnel in general.
Consequently, members of the general public and stakeholders are to disregard such publications and treat it as false, the 2020/2021 National Service period has not been postponed as others claim.
