Education across the world was a challenge as the COVID-19 pandemic became uncontrollable. Every part of the world had to shutdown schools to prevent the spread of the virus, due to that online tuition became the order of the day.
Ghana was not an exception, the education system was on indefinite hold in order to curtail the pandemic. This saw a number of permanent teachers in the education field forced to teach from home, as well as service personnel which were posted in the schools.
This made the incoming service personnel’s suspended since registration was also closed . Recently because of the ease of restrictions and things getting back to normal, the management of National Service Scheme has decided to start with the registrations.
Mr. Opoku Mensah, Ashanti Regional Director of the Scheme states that management has reopen the system for registration as a result of the lifting of restrictions on some levels in JHS and SHS.
He made this statement in a conversation on Nhyira FM with Papa Nyameke on its Morning Show Programme popularly called “Kuro Yi Mu Nsem.”
“We decided to suspend the registration of service personnel in the education sector because schools were not comprehensively opened during the general registration.
He continued saying that “after further discussions, management has decided to open registration. Therefore anyone posted to the education sector who was initially asked to hold on with the registration can come and register”.
