This, according to the National Service Scheme, is part of changes in the registration procedure, recruitment and deployment for the 2015/2016 service year. A statement issued in Accra and signed by the Acting Executive Director, Dr. Michael Kpessa- Whyte says all prospective national service personnel would be required to complete payment of their pre-registration fee of forty Ghana cedis (GH¢40.00) at any branch of the Agricultural Development Bank (ADB) across the country, using their uniquely assigned pin codes.The statement further added that it is only after the payment of the pre-registration fee that prospective national service personnel will have access to the Scheme’s on-line registration platform to register and be deployed for 2015/2016 national service. The statement therefore urged all prospective national service personnel to take note of this new registration procedure and comply accordingly.
