The beneficiaries of the Nation Builders Corps (Nabco) a flagship program, the Akufo-Addo government have been boosting of have expressed anguish over poor treatment by the secretariat and delay settlements of their peanuts.
Some trainees stormed the Npp delegates conference on Saturday to reflect their sentiments over the shoddy treatment by the Chief Executive Office of the program.
The trainees felt betrayed about the CEO’s treatment since he has refused to fight for them since the outset of the setup, treating them as nobody because of their ardor to work for the betterment of the country.
The frustrated trainees are however uncertain about the secretariat inability to publish official statement amidst the contract extension, permanent employment and the blockage of payment of their four months wages, meanwhile going about putting pictures on social media without caring for them.
‘‘The CEO, Dr. Ibrahim Anyars does not care for the progress of the cadets, he is always on social media and symposia, we have made several complaints pertaining to our allowances, but he has never shown interest, he is hoodwinking the trainees and ranting in the public space as if everything is fine, we are calling on H. E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo to ensure we are paid what is due us’’, they chronicled.
They have, however, took to their various social media platforms and voiced their resentments over how the Nabco headquarters have been treating them since the inception of the flagship program.
‘‘Christmas is just at the rim, the most excruciating view of our tale is that, we have never enjoyed Christmas festivities since the program came to been, some of us are parents and family heads, so we are urging the Npp government to consider our quandary and fulfill their promises’’.
‘‘This program is one of the greatest initiatives by the Npp government but because of poor leadership, the vision of it has been demoralized, we were made to vote for the Npp, we made donations for the Covid-19 support fund and even coerced to fill online career pathway exit plan, but all these efforts by the trainees have been proven futile’’, they mentioned.
In conclusion, they appealed to the government to give them permanent jobs as promised in their manifestos and other platforms in the country.
