Mr Vincent Kuagbenu, the Executive Director of the National Service Scheme (NSS), has advised graduates to accept postings to rural communities.

He said graduates who accepted postings to serve in deprived communities always employed their service without difficulties.

Mr Kuagbenu gave the advice at the maiden Brong-Ahafo Regional Awards for NSS personnel in Sunyani.

Ten hardworking personnel of the Service who distinguished themselves in the discharge of their duties were given flat screen television sets, refrigerators and satellite decoders. Ten others were given a mattress each.

Mr Kuagbenu said 68,000 graduates were deployed this year to render service in health, education, agriculture and the private sector and appealed to the personnel to work diligently and conform to professional ethics.

Mr Ali Awinbila, the Brong Ahafo Regional Director of the NSS, said the scheme was designed to instil in the youth patriotism, selflessness and hard work that would bring about meaningful developmental changes in the lives of people, especially those in rural areas.

He said he was aware of the challenges in the deprived areas in terms of education, health, poverty and food security  and that it was in that vein that the maiden awards programme was organised to show appreciation to the service personnel who excelled during their period of service.

Mr Awinbila expressed appreciation to the sponsors of the award, Newmont Ghana Gold Limited, Eusbett Hotel, PZ Cussons, WBHO and Latex Foam Limited for their immense contributions to making the ceremony a success.

The overall volunteer award in the service’s farm project went to Mr Bimi Suuk Bidokip, while Mr Collins Asabre was adjudged best in teaching.

Ali Salima Aloshio received the best award in the non-teaching category.
