The president of the National Service Personnel Association (NASPA), Philip Quaye has been suspended over allegations of malfeasance and misconduct towards council members.

Meanwhile, the National Service Secretariat has reconsidered its decision to make compulsory deductions from service personnel’s allowances as insurance.

In a press statement signed by the Executive Director, Mustapha Ussif, the National Service Personnel Association (NASPA) said the “insurance policy is now optional.”

The latest decision was taken at an Emergency Executive Council Meeting of the National Service Personnel Association (NASPA) in Accra on Wednesday.
