- PRO of the NSS says poor handwriting often delays payment of allowance
The secretariat of the National Service Scheme(NSS) has revealed that one of the reasons allowances of service personnel gets delayed is due to their poor handwriting.
According to the secretariat, most service personnel make locating their names very difficult whenever they fill their monthly assessment forms.
“Sometimes you look at the handwriting, you even find it difficult to pronounce the name,” Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the National Service Scheme (NSS), Ambrose Enstiwah Jnr revealed.
Over the past few weeks, service personnel have been complaining about delays in payment of their allowances but PRO of the secretariat insists, various challenges beyond their control is impeding the process.'
He has, therefore, cautioned personnel to write legibly so as to make the tracking of their names easier.
“We always tell them to write in capital letters, boldly written so that whoever is capturing the thing into the system can also see it,” he advised.
Some NSS personnel across the country have in weeks been complaining about the delay in receiving their three months allowances despite their biometric registration onto the system.
But authorities explain that the delay could be a system failure on their part due to wrong information they fed.
