The Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) trainees seem to have lost the hope of getting permanent job in the Public Sector as nothing has been done despite embarking on ‘Give us permanent job’ campaigb.
President of Nabco Trainees Association of Ghana (NABTAG), Katakyie Dennis and his Executives lauched operation give us permanent employment to draw the attention of the government and management of NABCO to their request, but it seems their effort did not catch the eye of the authorities since nothing has been or said about their request for almost three months after their campaign.
Information reaching AmNews indicates that, NABTAG has not submit any written document to the appropriate authorities, but have only engage in radio and electronic portal interviews.
“There is no assurance proven that we the NABCO trainees will be employed permanently by the government” – one of the trainees stated.
Meanwhile the leadership of NABCO have been urged by some trainees to officially write a petition and hand it over to H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, the President to remind him of the promise he made to trainees during the inauguration of the program at Blackstars Square in October 2018.
Some trainees also expressed fear that the initiative may come to a stand still after 2020 general election.
Politicians in this country only pay attention to the issues involving the populates in an election year, we will be doomed if they failed to give us permanent job before 2020 general elections.
Issues with Arrears
A certain percentage of trainees also expressed their displeasure about long standing arrears.
We are pleading with the management of NABCO and the government to pay us our long standing arrears because we are suffering, the Secretariat owe some of us from last year September till date, yet we go to work everyday. They should be up and doing to resolve any issues with arrears.
NABCO is the initiative of Ghana government to curb graduate unemployment in the country.
The program was inuaguarate in October 14, 2018 and commenced in November in the same year.
