National Service Scheme has hinted at plans to increase the allowances paid to service personnel from the current GH¢559. In an interview with Accra-based Joy News, Deputy Executive Director of the National Service Scheme (NSS), Gifty Oware-Mensah, said that it had already tabled a proposal before the Education Committee of Parliament for consideration. "The NSS has already submitted this thing [proposal for an upward adjustment in allowances] and it's not because we are seeking for. NSS personnel have in recent times been lamenting over the inadequacy of their allowance together with delays in its payment. A group calling itself Coalition of Suffering National Service Personnel took to the streets of Accra on Monday to protest their unpaid allowance.
