Increase NSS Allawa by 34% -NUGS To Government

The National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) has appealed to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to increase the allowance for National Service Personnel (NSP) from GH₵559 to GH₵800.

According to the President of NUGS, Dennis Appiah Larbi, the current allowance is insufficient.

Mr Larbi, in a post on social media, said the appeal was made to President Akufo-Addo at a meeting on Thursday (November 3, 2022).

“Showing of good faith is important in getting young people to understand the times we find ourselves in. As part of the request to the President of Ghana this afternoon, we made a passionate request for an increment in NSS allowance to 800 cedis! I repeat, 559 is not in any way understandable!”

Mr Larbi said the leadership of NUGS told the president that the request would be seen as a sign of good faith by young people in the country if granted.

“This afternoon, I requested from the President of the Republic in a meeting for an increase in NSS allowance to 800 cedis,” he posted on Facebook.

NUGS also appealed to the president to intervene in the increment of school and hostel fees in light of the current economic challenges.


The government in December 2016 approved GHC559.04 to be paid to National Service Personnel as a monthly allowance (starting January 1, 2017).

The reviewed amount represented a 60 per cent increment of GH₵350, which personnel were receiving at the time.

In January 2014, the National Service Scheme allowance increased to GH₵350.00 from GH₵243.48.
