NSS holds Remembrance Service for Departed Personnel
The National Service Scheme (NSS) recently held a Remembrance Day service at its headquarters in Accra as part of the scheme’s 50th-anniversary celebration.
The event was to honour service personnels who lost their lives in the line of duty. During the service, attendees were reminded of their collective responsibility to safeguard and strengthen the NSS for the benefit of all citizens.
The special guest of honour, Amb. Edward Boateng, Director-General of the State Interests and Governance Authority (SIGA) highlighted the pivotal role of NSS in bridging the gap between academia and young graduates. He commended the scheme for instilling in graduates a sense of national duty and work ethic.
He further stated, “We must also acknowledge the visionaries, leaders, and dedicated staff who have tirelessly worked to ensure the success of the NSS over the years. Their unwavering commitment to the betterment of our country deserves our recognition and appreciation.”
Mr. Osei Assibey Antwi, the Executive Director of NSS, also remarked that the day served as a moment not only to commemorate the dedication and sacrifices of service personnel but also to reinvigorate staffs’ commitment to the principles of the scheme.
“We must remind ourselves that the work they began is far from finished and their legacy depends on us to carry it forward with renewed vigor and dedication”, he said.
The event concluded with a wreath-laying and flag-hoisting ceremony in memory of fallen service personnel.
