The wish of every prospective service personnel is to find the best place to do national service in Ghana. Numerous benefits come with getting a good place to do your national service.
Unfortunately, the National Service Secretariat assigns prospective service personnel to various public and private organizations. As a result, prospective service personnel have no say in where they will be posted.
NSS SPECIAL POSTINGS
However, there is always a way out of every situation. You can do an NSS Special Posting instead of letting the secretariat to assign you to a random location.
NSS Special Posting is when prospective service personnel who were not successful in getting assigned to entities of their choice after NSS Posting pays a fee to be assigned to a location of their preference.
