The Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolitan Director of the National Service Scheme (NSS), Ebenezer Asante, has admitted that some NSS coordinators demand for sex from female national service personnel before posting them to their areas of choice.

He has therefore told female national service personnel to be assertive enough and resist such demands from coordinators since sexual demands were not part of the code of conduct of the scheme.

β€œIn fact it is true that some coordinators do ask some female service personnel for sex before posting them to places they ask for but let me state that, that is not part of our ethics,” he stressed.

Mr. Asante was reacting to a question by one of the service personnel after a talk on the need for employees to abide by the code of ethics of their respective organizations at the first general meeting of national service personnel in various communities in the Western region.

The questioner wanted to find out what female job seekers should do when they were asked for sexual favours in exchange for jobs by managers of companies.

The metropolitan director of the NSS indicated that it was appalling to note that certain managers who should know better, rather asked for sex from female job seekers before accepting them in their organizations.

He explained that it was mandatory for all graduates who were 18 years and above to do their national service after completing their tertiary education.

He bemoaned the situation where certain national service persons, after receiving their appointment letters, failed to go to their stations but connived with some people in their areas of postings and collected their allowances.

He also appealed to the service personnel to make good use of their productive hours in their respective organizations since they stood the chance of getting permanent jobs in the organizations after their service.

The Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolitan Coordinating Director, Mohammed Zakari, asked the service personnel to leave behind good legacies at their respective areas of postings.
