NABCO Trainees To Hit The Streets

The Coalition of Nation Builders Corps has served a notice on its intention to embark on a demonstration if the government fails to pay its arrears by June 10, 2022.

The group says the government owes seven months in arrears.

“Our situation has been deteriorated and worsened by seven solid months unpaid stipends since we were directed to remain at post subjecting us to extreme hardship and privation”.

“All efforts to get government to pay these allowances have been fruitless upon official petitions and calls to your outfit”, a letter to the Chief Executive Officer of the NABCO said.

The coalition has, therefore, given the government up until June 10, 2022, to make payment of their allowances else “we are going to embark on an unprecedented massive demonstration against the government”.

The Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) programme is a government initiative to address graduate unemployment to solve social problems.

This means the focus of the initiative will be solving public service delivery in health, education, agriculture, technology, governance, and driving revenue mobilisation and collection.

Launching the initiative in 2018, President Akufo-Addo said “NABCO will be the vehicle to deliver one hundred thousand (100,000) jobs in seven (7) prioritised areas, defined as the following modules: Educate Ghana; Heal Ghana; Feed Ghana; Revenue Ghana; Digitise Ghana; Enterprise Ghana; and Civic Ghana.”

The first cohort of trainees on the scheme was issued a notice from the Ghana Standard Authority dated 29th October 2021 saying, “as part of the exit plan of the NABCO programme which ends this month, we write to inform all NABCO trainees to proceed on two weeks mandatory leave effective Monday, November 1, to November 15.

On November 15, 2022, authorities of the scheme issued a notice to the effect that “the NABCO secretariat expects trainees to continue to discharge their duties diligently and professionally at their various workplaces while the scheme and the MIPs work toward a smooth final transition.”
