The National Service Scheme says it will continue to play its role in ensuring that key sectors of the Ghanaian economy are filled with the right human resources for the country’s development.
Deputy Executive Director of the NSS, Kweku Ohene-Gyan said: “For us at national service, we feel fulfilled that we have remained resolute in our quest to carry through our mandate to provide essential services to the people of Ghana in the areas of agriculture, education, health, local government, military, rural development, physical planning, civil engineering and rural industries, among others.”
Speaking at the commissioning of a newly constructed fence wall for the Ejura Government Hospital, by the National Service Scheme, Mr. Ohene Gyan said “Nananom made a request to the Scheme to assist in constructing a fence wall for the Ejura Government Hospital, we did not hesitate at all in accepting and promising to do just that.”
He adds that “what we are witnessing here today – commissioning of this fence wall for the Ejura Government Hospital and formal handing over to the hospital authorities – is in fulfilment of the promise we made to Nananom. The project has taken us about a year to complete at a cost of GH¢140,000.”
Kwaku Ohene-Gyan said the NSS’ core mandate is to help government achieve its programmes and policies.
“Let me take this opportunity, therefore, to state that our mandate, as stipulated in Section 3 (1) of the National Service Act, 1980 (Act 426), would continue to guide us, as we take full advantage of His Excellency the President’s vision of Planting for Food and Jobs, to make sure that we maximize every opportunity that Nananom in Ejura would continue to offer us in the area of agriculture.”
