The National Service Scheme has extended the 2018 NSS registration for prospective service personnel to June 2, 2018
In a statement signed by the Public Affairs director, the extended date is to allow NSS prospects who have not been able to complete their registration to do so.
The registration was originally planned to end Wednesday May 30, 2018 and prospective personnel are to produce either a valid voter’s ID card, SSNIT biometric card or passport to register. National Health Insurance ID cards are not accepted.
“The management of National Service Scheme (NSS) has extended the deadline for the 2018/2019 service year registration to 20th June 2018.”
All NSS prospects are expected to go to Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) office across the country to obtain an SSNIT card for the smooth registration process.
Explaining the postponement, the Public Relations Officer of the NSS, Mr David Prah said it has been realised that many prospective service personnel have not been able to register because they don’t have any of the required national identification cards.
He said although a good number of people have been able to register successfully, some have not been able to register basically due to their inability to produce a valid identity card.
He said the NSS has therefore made arrangements with the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) for people to register for the SSNIT biometric ID cards which is accepted for national service registration.
The Management of NSS advice all NSS prospect to channel all their Challenges relating to the registration process to respective NSS Regional Secretariat across the country or the Head office for directions and assistance.
The Management of the scheme is also reminding all prospects that they will continue to validate all personnel who have gone through the right registration process and will prosecute all impersonators
“Management wish to remind all prospective National Service personnel that the Scheme will continue to carry out validation for all personnel who have gone through the registration process and those found to have impersonated others would be prosecuted.”
