Scores of NSS personnel within the Ashanti region laments over delayed allowances owed them while others have not received none at all.
Authorities of the scheme are now under fire over what the personnel describes as wicked and demonic strategy in compelling them (the personnel) to go for their (the authorities') direct loans which has a 65% interest rate.
According to most of these aggrieved personnel, not even a single month allowance has been paid ever since they started the service, others complain they only received one month allowance with others claiming two months out of the four to almost five months they served.
Disclosing their ordeal to the media, most of them said they came from far places and had not option but to rent rooms, pay water bills, light bills in addition to their lorry fare, and since their allowances are not paid, it has made their lives very worst.
They expressed disappointment and dissatisfaction in the authorities of the national service scheme for using such demonic strategy into deceiving them to go for the loans.
"We don't want your direct loan which you have been disturbing us with through text messages. Better pay us our actual allowance. You deliberately starve and compelled us to come for your loans? No way!
"Better pay us our money, your frantic effort to give us wild loans has become very obvious to say the least”, they said in anger.
In their agitations, they have called on authorities to attend to their demand in less than 2 days or face their wrath.
