National Service personnel have been directed to take their mandatory paid- annual leave effective Wednesday, March 25 till the end of April 2020.

A statement signed by Executive Director of the National Service Scheme, Mustapha Ussif, asked all newly posted nurses who are due to start national service in April to also take a month’s leave in April as their terminal leave.

These arrangements replace the annual terminal leave granted to all national service personnel which is the last month of their service period.

This means personnel will be at the post in the last month of national service.

The statement said the directives were arrived at following the circular by the Public Services Commission’s recommending that all interns, national service personnel, NABCO Officers and other non-essential staff take their leave.
