The leadership of the NABCo Trainees Association of Ghana (NBATAG) has sent a clear signal to government that until the areas of trainees are settled in full, trainees would continue to demonstrate and occupy the Jubilee House.

Speaking to A1 News, National President for NABTAG, Dennis Opoku Katakyie said over the last few months, the government had taken the membership of NABCO for granted. The government’s refusal to pay stipends, he says, makes life unbearable.

According to Mr. Katakyie, leadership has presented a petition to the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II hoping that he steps in to salvage the situation. If the the petition does not produce results, the trainees would be forced to demonstrate.

“Despite all our efforts, the government is still turning a deaf ear to our calls and we have been pushed to the wall. We have no option but to take such a decision. On the 18th of August, we are going to the Jubilee house. Today-tomorrow we are giving official notice to Ghana Police Service on our intention to demonstrate.”

“We are not just not going there to just return without any positive results. If the government upon receiving our petition does not give us any concrete news that we could rely on and leave the Jubilee House, then we are not leaving. We are not leaving and we will not leave.”

The frustrated National President could not comprehend why the government kept telling trainees that it had no funds to pay the allowances when they [government] were able pay their own salaries every month.

“Imagine not being paid for 9 to 10 months. How could we be treated this way in our own country? This is very pathetic. This is very painful and is a national security threat and I think this should get attention for a rapid result.”
