In a significant policy proposal, Dr , the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (), announced that under his leadership, national service would no longer be mandatory for graduates seeking immediate employment after completing tertiary education.

Speaking to party supporters and leaders at the auditorium on Wednesday, February 7, 2024, Dr Bawumia expressed the need to reevaluate the current national service scheme to better align with the job market's demands.

He outlined his vision by stating, “My government will propose that those who, after completion of their education, can secure jobs would be exempted from national service.” Dr. Bawumia emphasized that under this proposed plan, students will have the option to decide whether to participate in national service.

The flagbearer believes that this adjustment to the national service system will not only provide more flexibility for graduates but also encourage companies to conduct annual recruitment drives on campuses.
