Nat’l Service Personnel to picket at Flagstaff House

FLAGSTAFF-HOUSE-1-1200x520

The Greater Accra arm of the  National Service Personnel Association have hinted it would picket at the Flagstaff House on Wednesday, March 1, 2017.

In the last quarter of 2016, the erstwhile National Democratic Congress (NDC) government adjusted monthly allowances of personnel from GHS 350.00 to GHS 559.04.

However, the January allowance of GHS350.00 received by members did not go down well with some members who decided subsequently to organise a demonstration in protest against the current New Patriotic Party (NPP) government’s failure to abide by the 60 per cent increment.

In a statement signed by the president of the association, Kojo S.A Danquah said a 7-day ultimatum which was given to government elapsed without a conclusive decision on the matter hence their decision to picket at the flagstaff house.

Below is the press statement:
