Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), announced his intentions to make significant changes to the National Service scheme and tax system if elected as President.


Addressing supporters and party leaders, Bawumia stated that under his government, National Service would no longer be mandatory for graduates seeking immediate employment opportunities after completing their tertiary education.


Bawumia expressed the need for an updated approach to the current National Service scheme to better align with the job demands of graduates.
He proposed that individuals who secure employment after completing their education should be exempted from National Service.
