John Mahama’s IG post on Tuesday, May 17, 2022, follows brewing agitations among some personnel of the National Service Scheme (NSS) over delayed payment of arrears of the allowances.

The aggrieved personnel complained about the delay in a series of tweets and Facebook posts in March this year, disclosing that the delay to pay their arrears made life difficult.

This compelled the Scheme to apologise, promising that it was working hard to pay their outstanding allowances. But that has since not happened.
