An Upper East Regional Communication Team Member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Andrew Atariwini in an earlier conversation expressed confidence that approximately 70,000 out of the 100,000 trainees temporarily employed under the Akufo-Addo-led government’s National Builders Corps (NABCO) have been employed fully by government agencies and some private partners.

This, he said, is the reason there have been fewer agitations with regard to stipends and conditions of service for the trainees. He made this statement when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show today, Tuesday, July 26, 2022.

Many however have taken to A1 Radio’s official Facebook page to question the source of his data and suggest that the numbers that were put out by Mr. Atariwini were inaccurate.

Apuakasi Pallas wrote, “four NABCO workers are at my workplace. They are all sitting home. Because they have not been paid for several months, they aren’t coming to work. Where then did they get those figures? Eiii, politicians should be careful! 70,000 is not mean a small number.”

Man Piero wrote, “if you know the way NABCO employees are angry, you wouldn’t have propagated that propaganda.”

Mumuni Fusheini also wrote, “master, speak the truth so that those who can offer the NABCO Trainees permanency do so and stop your lies. We are all party footsoldiers but they refuse to offer us jobs and we entering into a crucial election year.”
But responding to the seeming displeasure and anger, Mr. Atariwini insisted that the numbers he presented were accurate.
“I told you that I speak for the government and my source is government. It is a fact,” he said.
