NABCO personnel cry as gov’t fails to pay them seven months’ allowances


Personnel under the Nations Builders Corps (NABCO) say they are owed seven months by the government.

It could be remembered that the Government of Ghana ordered that NABCO personnel should stay put and not leave although the programme had ended.

But personnel who did not vacate their posts say they have not been paid seven months after government gave that order.

They say they will die of hunger because they cannot afford a better living standard because government has failed to pay them.

In a statement drumming home their challenges, the NABCO personnel association said

“The ultimate goal of reducing graduate unemployment cannot be materialized if these beneficiaries who were directed to remain at post, pending permanency arrangements are not absorbed into the mainstream work.

“There have been a series of calls on the government in lieu of the permanent employment arrangement but to no avail. The current situation is disturbing beyond measure coupled with almost seven months of arrears,” the President of the Association, Dennis Opoku Katakyie disclosed in a statement dated May 23, 2022.

 “The situation on the ground is not reflective of the promise made to invest in the youth through job creation. We are asking the government this simple question: although we have been told of the soon-to-come arrears/permanent arrangement, until when?”
