Some Nabco trainees in the Ashanti have grumbled about how their landlords’ have been on their neck and hunting them over failure to pay their rent bills after expiration because of non payments of their monthly stipends for the past four months.
The cadets have hinted how the Nabco Secretariat has turned back and deaf ears to their quest to pay their four months stipends, making life intolerable to them.
In an interview with some trainees, they noted that the Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Ibrahim Anyars has never been fair to them since the initiation of the program.
“I stay at Ashtown in the Ashanti region with my wife and three kids, I couldn’t buy even a tin of milk for them this merry season, the most regrettable aspect of it is that, my landlord has given me up January 10th to evacuate the room, I paid for three years rent which expired last October, so he is on my neck for renewal or eviction,” a trainee said.
‘’I am married with four kids with my husband. He is also unemployed. Our only source of finance and hope was the stipends meanwhile we were not paid, our rent is long overdue, how do we survive in these hardships’’, she quizzes.
“We were told to go back to our agencies after the three years contract expired but the Nabco Secretariat refused to provide us official document pertaining to the extension or permanent arrangements, however they have refused to pay the little peanuts we can use to settle the accumulated debts we owe people so that we can be free, we are calling on H. E Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo Addo to come to our in order to ensure we are paid our arrears and others.”
In addition, some trainees under the Civic Ghana module of the scheme, names withheld added that, preceding to the permanent placements, the Information Services Department, the agency which they work under took their minutiae in August but they have heard nothing from them, meanwhile, they have recruited new ones into the offices where they are working.
“It seems we are slaves, the ISD took our details in August to process us for permanent jobs but we don’t know what is going on, day in and out there are fresh recruits in our offices, we are appealing to the Office of the President and our Module Implementation Partners to reconsider their decisions and give us permanent jobs, since we have the requisite documents and experience to work ’’ They affirmed.
