NATIONAL SERVICE PERSONNEL PETITIONS TO THE GOVERNMENT OF GHANA.
TO: THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT
ARE WE NOT SERVING AS EXPECTED?
on the 19th December, 2016, there was a letter with reference number (FWSC/D/SCR.3/Vol.17/26) from Ministry of Finance indicating the UPWARD ADJUSTMENT OF NATIONAL SERVICE ALLOWANCE, that increment represented only 60% of fresh graduate salary on a single spine salary structure (SSSS).
This call had lots of smiles on Personnels faces since our much awaited puzzle was being solved. Mr. President, we want to again remind you that we still are very committed in Serving our Mother Ghana whole heartedly and will keep on being Leaders in Youth Advocacy through our Service to communities and the Nation at large.
Mr. President, though service personnel, we do also pay rent, pay utilities and in some instances, incurre expenses such as transportation, day-to-day administration of our lives and even personnel in the teaching fields have to sometimes motivate some students in diverse ways to boost them to be encouraged more to attend school.
Your Excellency, though we are willing to serve, can we serve with empty stomach? No. We can't. You did recognized of the hardship in the economy and promised a better live for each citizen so please hear our plea since we are equally affected in the economy.
Mr. President, if in the same period, two approvals were issued and one is being looked down upon, does that mean we look inferior to the Government? We ask this question because the 12% of Wage/Salary workers has been credited to their accounts whilst ours have not taken effect.
We weep today with disappointed hearts, and ask this simple question; Are we inferior in the eyes of the Government?
Please don't deny us of that which we fought and strived hard to achieve at last.
Your Excellency, pls we believed in your agenda and we helped you push it through hence we anticipate on your response to our petition.
Long Live National Service personnel
Long Live NASPA.
Long Live Ghana.
Long Live Africa.
