Several hundreds of 2017/2018 National Service personnel have blamed the long queues  at the registration centres to inadequate biometric registration devices.

The personnel have been compelled to stand in long queues for hours at the Accra Metro registration centre just for their biometric registration to enable them undertake the mandatory service to the state.

Some of them say they sometimes get to the registration centre as early as 2:00am but getting there early does not guarantee a successful registration as the officials only deal with 400 people daily.

Ghanaian students who graduate from accredited tertiary institutions are required by law to do a one-year national service to the country.

The National Service Secretariat (NSS) is the government of Ghana agency mandated to formulate policies and structures for national service.

Fresh graduates seeking to register for a year of national service were brutalised by soldiers amid a chaotic registration process this week.
