The National Service programme is a compulsory one-year service required of all citizens of Ghana who are 18 years and above, at the time of deployment.
All Final year students details are sent by the schools to NSS before graduations for the service to generate a unique pincode for all students. This pincode is for all students, whether you will do the service or not.
Students are to pay to activate this pin codes before use. This is the first requirement from all students.
