The Chief Executive of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA), Mohammed Adjei Sowah has admonished National Service Personnel to be dedicated and hardworking in their line of duty.

Mr Adjei Sowah made this known on Monday during a one-day orientation programme for the 2020/2021 National Service Personnel posted to the AMA to formally usher them into the institution.
“I advise you all to focus on the work that will be assigned to you and desist from bad working attitudes such as laziness and lateness. Over here work begins exactly at 8:30 am and closes at 5 pm you do not have to use your location as an excuse and then get here late. Even though it is your national service you should put in more effort,” he added.
He explained that the National Service Programme was an opportunity for personnel to render their services and prove how patriotic they are to the Nation.
He indicated that this year’s personnel would be deployed to departments and given specific roles and assignments to make them more productive.
