The Ashanti Regional branch of the National Service Secretariat (NSS) on Wednesday organized an orientation forum for 200 national service persons (NSPs) who would be sent out to help Small and Medium Scale Enterprises with accounting services in the region.

This new module is a new initiative set out by the Executive Director of the NSS, Osei Assibey Antwi and SMES across the country and christened ‘Accounting Module’ where NSPs are sent as accounting aids to these institutions.

Opening the orientation forum in Kumasi, acting Ashanti Regional NSS Director, Mr Prince Kankam Boadu entreated NSPs who had signed onto the module to demonstrate good character and efficiency at the places they would be assigned to.

‘’This module would give you opportunities to build something for yourselves after service and I urge you to demonstrate good skills and diligence at where you would be posted’’, the regional director stressed.

RESOURCE PERSON:

Mr Aleem Kumi Agyemang, Senior Managing Partner-Aliska took NSPs through the rudiments of the Accounting module.

He urged them to abide by the ethics and demonstrate competence in the accounting and statistical modules at where they would be placed.

Mr Aleem revealed that about 80 persons who used to work for the NSS have found careers in business when they got the opportunity to put into practice the things they learnt under the Accounting Aid Module.

‘’This accounting aid module is a partnership between government and business enterprises and this is to help NSPs render services to SMEs while the government pays for same’’, the resource person told newsmen.

CHAIRMAN:

Nana Amponsah Kwaah, Atwima Kwanwoma Chief who chaired the occasion urged NSPs to take advantage of the new module to deliver competence at where they would be posted to.

He noted that many would find lasting jobs or create their own jobs when they take the period of national service seriously.

Nana asked the NSPs to abide by the code of conduct of the NSS and refrain from attitudes that would make the institutions they would be working with regret signing them on.

‘’As you step out you would be defining your future lives by what you do and the kind of service you render and bear in mind that you would find lasting jobs if you decide to serve and learn the lessons from same’’, Nana Kwaah stated.
