Board Chairman of the National Service Scheme, (NSS), Professor Kofi Akuako said the needed financial resources will be injected into the NSS water bottling factory to make it operational.

He has therefore directed the management of the scheme to re-evaluate the project cost and immediately get the contractor back on site to finish with the work.

Professor Akuako said this when the 7 member board visited some of the project sites of the National Service scheme.

The board chairman expressed regret why a viable project like the water bottling factory will be left to rot.

At the time of the visit, the NSS water bottling factory located at Medie in the Greater Accra region which was started in 2009 has been taken over by squatters, with what was meant to be the canteen turned into a church.

Prof. Akuako expressed frustration the way government projects and facilities are handle. He said the board will do everything possible within the shortest time to get the factory.

The board also visited the National Service farm at Papao near Haatso and the Nungua farms all in the Greater Accra region.

The Executive Director of the National Service Scheme Ussif Mustapha said he intends to make the scheme very profitable at the same time a learning centre for personnel.

He said with the government injecting 25 million Ghana cedis into the schemes agricultural project, come the next planting season it is going into full time farming to meet the government's planting for food and job program.
