The over 200 NSS recruits whose employement was terminated have threatened legal action against the scheme.
The public relations officer of the sacked recruits Edwin Afetsi told Citi FM news, "We have reviewed the situation decided that we will pursue the matter in court because we realise that we have done nothing wrong and the decision taken was not based on any proper ground so we will pursue the matter in court. We have spoken to our lawyers and hopefully next week the case may be in court. We want that illegal decision to be revoked. They should revoke their own letter that is trying to revoke our legal appointment.”
On Wednesday, February 8, all 205 recruits had their appointment terminated in a letter signed by the acting director of the scheme, Ussif Mustapha.
The management of the scheme explained that the appointment of the recruits right before the exit of the previous NDC government did not follow due process and as such, the appointments were invalid.
However, the immediate former director of the NSS, Dr Kpessah-Whyte dismissed these claims stating that all due process in employing these recruits were covered, and there is proof of documentation.
He further advised the NSS recruits to seek legal justice for their terminated appointments.
