Several people expressed their dissatisfaction with the unreliable and insufficient payment system in an interview with Pulse News; others were even considering quitting the service entirely.

The 24-year-old Johnson expressed his displeasure by saying, “I’m not thrilled that I’ve finally received my allowance. How come I only receive an allowance for two months after working for five? We’re getting annoyed with them. Sincerely, I’d like to give up.”

The 23-year-old Curtis expressed unhappiness with the half payout, echoing similar sentiments. “Out of four months, two. To be honest, I think they ought to have paid in full. Given the delay, there is absolutely no justification for a partial payment. “Why commit to a monthly payment when you are unable to fulfill it?” he said.

The financial burden resulting from late payments was brought to light by Angela, a National Service Person employed by the Ghana Education Service.

“They should try their best to pay the allowance on time because most personnel are taking care of themselves, so they tend to borrow money from friends,” she said. “They should get in touch with the NSPs if there is anything preventing them from paying these funds on schedule. I think that’s important to communicate.”

The 23-year-old Precious expressed her displeasure and emphasized how unjust the payment method was. “Just 2 months… it’s so unfair to work for 5 months and just get two months’ pay,” she said. “All I have to tell them is that a lot needs to be done to improve the working conditions of the NSS.”
