NABCO trainees disgruntled over non-payment of allowances

Aug 22, 2020

Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) trainees at the Ga West Municipal Hospital are lamenting over non-payment of allowances over a year now.

According to them, all efforts to get their coordinators to address their problem have failed.

NABCO is a social intervention programme introduced by the government to help reduce graduate unemployment.

The three-year programme was introduced in May 2018, giving a first batch of 100,000 unemployed, temporary and experienced building job opportunities.

One Vincent Tetteh, a NABCO trainee at the hospital, explained on Accra-based radio station, Citi FM that the non-payment of their allowances was negatively affecting their lives particularly parents among them.

“Out of 14 months now I have received payment for only four months and I have 10 months in arrears. I am not the only one, there are others who have the same issue, with some with as high as 13-month in arrears.

There are also parents among us who use this same money to take care of their wives and children, so not receiving payments for months is a worry.

Also in this era of COVID-19, where parents need to buy extra data for the use of virtual learning, the government must expedite actions to pay the allowances,” he said.
