Legon Final Year Students Urged to Accept Postings

The Executive Director of the National Service Scheme (NSS), Osei Assibey Antwi, has called on final-year students of the University of Ghana, Legon, to accept their service postings and perform their duties diligently during their service year.

He made the call today during a pre-service orientation session aimed at preparing students for their service year by providing example-based training and feedback to help them adapt to changing customer demands, industry trends, and regulatory requirements.


Speaking at the orientation held at the Great Hall of the University of Ghana, Legon, Assibey Antwi emphasised the importance of national service as an opportunity to gain invaluable experience and serve the nation.

He mentioned that industrious service personnel often receive job offers before the completion of their service year.

"The onus lies on each and every one of you to exert hard work and give your all during service, knowing that at the day of reckoning, job opportunities await you," he noted.


Assibey Antwi further acknowledged potential challenges during the registration process, advising students to provide accurate information to avoid issues.

He reassured students that, despite these challenges, there are substantial opportunities to leverage as university graduates.

"Everywhere in the world faces one challenge or another in navigating through developmental prospects, and certainly, the case of Ghana is no exception. As much as a few challenges will glare at you, I must assure you that there are equally juicy opportunities you can leverage," he stated.


The Greater Accra Regional Minister, Hon. Daniel Nii Kwartei Titus Glover, echoed Assibey Antwi's admonition and urged students to embrace their service year with dedication and to treat others with respect and kindness.

"Dedication to a life of service is a proof of the strength of character and the depth of one's conviction. Be proactive, and shun indiscipline. Greatness awaits all of you," he stated.

In response, the NSS boss reiterated the NSS's mission rooted in community service and indicated the significant impact of the NSP in making a difference in the country.

Meanwhile, participants expressed their appreciation for the orientation session and lauded the NSS boss for his dedication to their preparation despite his busy schedule.

In a related development, final-year students at the University of Media, Arts, and Communications—Institute of Journalism were also oriented on what is expected of them before, during, and after their service.


The Scheme as currently constituted provides newly qualified graduates the opportunity to have practical exposure on the job, both in the public and private sectors, as part of their civic responsibility to the State
