Parliament passes National Service Authority Bill 2024


Parliament has passed the National Service Authority Bill 2024 on Tuesday, July 9.

The bill aims to establish the National Service Authority.

The house was unanimous in giving the national service autonomy, TV3’s Komla Klutse reported from Parliament.

The Executive Director of the National Service Scheme, Osei Assibey Antwi, who addressed the media on this development said that with the approval by parliament, national service will no longer be service of old.

“If you have a vibrant youth, if you have a youth that has a future, if you have a youth that knows where they are going, if you have a youth that has the policy to guide them, especially at this time that the current management and the board have now moved into a new direction called deployment for employment. This deployment for employment can only be enhanced with this current backing.”

He added “Now, Parliament has given us autonomy, an authority vested with powers in areas where it will enhance entrepreneurship.

“With this current status, NSS can work to achieve a lot of internally-generated funds to reduce the burden on the central government, and we know the President will assent to it to give it the finality.”
