As if there weren’t enough obstacles to carrying out this so-called ‘national service’ – some unlucky service personnel would even find themselves ‘bounced’ from the institutions they have been posted to by the Scheme.
Registration itself is a wahala, which includes standing in long queues and now even getting assaulted – but even completing all those stages does not a guarantee you a service post with some companies.
A letter sighted by GhanaCelebrities.Com shows that Tullow Oil, for instance, would put prospective personnel through a recruitment process which would end with some of them being cut.
So someone could conceivably be posted to Tullow and yet have no place to work by the end of the process – at which point the Scheme would be far done with postings.
Another company, the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA), simply sent back a chunk of those posted there by the scheme.
As if there weren’t enough challenges getting a suitable posting in this Godforsaken country.
