According to her, the nation’s budget did not capture allowance increment hence she doesn’t foresee an increment in the allowances.
THE BUDGET HAS BEEN READ, THE MID-YEAR BUDGET HAS BEEN READ AND THERE WAS NO INCREMENT SO I DON’T THINK THERE’LL BE AN INCREMENT IN NSS ALLOWANCE.
However, she added that she has been advocating for an increment in the NSS allowance.
EVERY YEAR AS NSS BOSS, I MAKE A CASE FOR AN INCREMENT OF ALLOWANCE. AS NSS BOSS, I LOSE NOTHING IF A NATIONAL SERVICE PERSONNEL IS PAID GHC1000.
National Service Personnel earn GHC559.04 monthly…..an amount they have been earning since April 1, 2017.
