NABCO trainees to fast Nov. 9 over unpaid allowance



The Nation Builders Corps Trainees Association of Ghana (NABTAG) has declared a one-day prayer for God’s intervention to touch the heart of government over their unpaid allowances.

The trainees will, therefore, fast on Wednesday, 9 November 2022.

A statement issued by the trainees said: “Some of the suffering NABCO trainees are to fast and pray on Wednesday, November 9th 2022, [for] God to touch the heart of our leaders to hear our cry and pay us.

“NABCO trainees sacrificed their life for Ghana for 46 tough months (3years, 10month).”

It noted: “Unfortunately for us after 46 months of sacrifice, we were just told to go home sadly. By that time, the government was owing us 10 months’ stipends.

“We pleaded for a long time and the government insulted us with one-month stipend.”

It entreated “every trainee to be part of this one-day fasting and prayers.”

NABCo was introduced by the Akufo-Addo-led administration in 2017 as part of measures to address graduate unemployment in the country.

The initiative was run under seven modules, namely Educate Ghana, Heal Ghana, Feed Ghana, Revenue Ghana, Digitize Ghana, Enterprise Ghana, and Civic Ghana.
