National Service Personnel Say Protests Would be An Option if Unpaid Allowances Remain Unaddressed

This call to strike follows grievances raised by Service Personnel in the public sector who have been grappling with meeting their basic needs amidst prolonged delays in allowance payments.

National Service Personnel have expressed frustrations over the government’s failure to pay outstanding allowances, saying that they would go on demonstrations if the matter isn’t addressed.

“The delayed payment is a worry to us. We are telling the scheme and government that this is unacceptable. In the coming days, after probably our last meeting with the board and government, we will announce our next line of action which is to call for a strike and subsequently a demonstration,” Nana Adu Gyamfi Mensah, Secretary of the National Service Personnel Association said to Joy News.

The delay, which sometimes spans several months, has left many personnel from the 2023-2024 batch without allowances since January 2024.
