I am a newly trained teacher waiting to do national service, if i fail to do the topup, would i still be posted?

I cant assure you that. GES may consider to post you since you are the last remnants of the Diploma system.

If you are left behind, i am sorry, you may have to find a way of joining the degree bus.

 

What about in service teachers with diploma, would they be sacked if they dont upgrade?

No. But they would be given time to do that and gradually, the diploma would phase out on its own.
