The Member of Parliament (MP) for Trobu in the Greater Accra Region, Hon. Moses Anim, has lamented on the new national service scheme modules which sees over 1000 service personnel deployed onto highways to direct traffic.

According to him, the development has the tendency of sinking competitiveness in the job market compared to their colleagues who received posting to other fields of work.

The National Service Secretariat (NSS), introduced a new module in 2015, which will see personnel deployed onto the streets to help manage traffic.

The module, dubbed “Urban Traffic Management”, is expected to complement efforts by the Ghana Police Service in traffic management in the country’s urban areas.

However, speaking on Joy TV’s  AM morning show programme, the MP described as shocking to see graduates from  our various Tertiary institutions been compelled to direct traffic on our high ways.

He said these personnel could have been used to fill gaps in most important field and sectors lacking personnel instead of positioning them on the road to direct traffic.
