Nana Addo angers millions of service personnel over failed 60% allowance increase, threats of nationwide protest looms

National service personnel to protest against allowances




Disappointment and stark agitation swept through the faces of national service personnel after realizing that their revised allowances as directed by the erstwhile National Democratic Congress (NDC) have not been paid by the new government.

President Mahama just weeks after losing the 2016 general elections announced a 60 percent increment in the monthly allowance of service personal – a development totaling GH¢559.04 instead of the current GH¢ 350.00.





Feeling disappointed after checking their balance at the banks, aggrieved service personnel are threatening to embark on a nation-wide protest if government fail to make the increment a reality.

“The allowance was supposed to have taken effect January 1, 2017, we waited patiently and we went to the bank at the end of the month, to our surprise we were paid the initial amount of ghc350.00 which were paid to us over the years. For the past three to four years now there hasn’t been any increment in the allowances of National service personnel notwithstanding, high utility bills, inflation, high cost of living, if there has been an approval of increment then that increment must be given to us …we are planning to meet all necessary stakeholders involved and if it includes hitting the street, we will,” president of the Greater Accra NSS, Kojo Danquah reveals..

The new administration has revealed during its transition that it will review all policies issued after the 2016 election by the erstwhile NDC administration.
