In a statement issued on Monday, the NSS said a total of Eighty-Six Thousand Four Hundred and Seventy-Eight (86,478) eligible graduates from accredited tertiary institutions and private registrants who enrolled for the 2020/2021 national service have been posted to various user agencies across Ghana.
Registration and validation of the prospective service persons would begin at all centres across the country from Thursday, September 3, 2020, the NSS statement said.
The figure is an increase on the 77,962 prospective national service personnel who were posted in the 2019/2020 service year.
However, service personnel deployed to educational institutions are directed to hold on with their registration and validation until schools officially re-open.
