Some trainees under the Nations builders corps (Nabco) are beginning to have the resolve that their monies have been invested by the officials of Nabco, and as a result caused the delay of their stipends. Nabco has however denied and dismissed such allegations.
After the commencement of the program in October 2018 by the current president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, trainees, coordinators, as well as officials have not been in good terms due to the delay of the payment of stipends.
Coordinators have released a statement to go on strike if their salaries for the last three months are not paid to them. Meanwhile trainees have also attempted on several occasions to go on demonstration.
A group called “Coalitions of Nabco” led by one Nana Barimah over the week released a stress statement, stating trainees plan to go on demonstration come Friday.
Tune Talk Media spoke to a source in the nabco office and we realized that trainees are also contributing to the delay of their stipends.
The source made it clear that, as at now some trainees still have problems with their E Zwich card making it difficult for the secretariat to release their stipends. He also stated that some trainees have not uploaded their assumption letters neither have they updated their info, but are complaining about the delay of their stipends.
He added that it’s the board’s dream to pay trainees early, but monies can’t be paid if the right channels are not followed.
He therefore condemned the trainees decision to go on demonstration. He asked them to exercise patience and follow the right procedures in submitting their time sheet, updating their info and uploading their assumptions, if possible to avoid delay in payment of stipends.
The Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) programme is a government initiative to address graduate unemployment to solve social problems.
