The Nation Builder’s Corps (NABCo) trainees who are owed some 9 months arrears have served noticed that they would picket at the Jubilee House in the coming days. The trainees say they would not leave until they receive bank alerts signalling receipt of the arrears owed or the government pays them in cash.
This was communicated by the President of the Nabco Trainees Association of Ghana (NABTAG), Dennis Opoku Aseidu. He said this when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show today, Tuesday, August 23, 2022.
“We are not going there with guns, neither are we going there with any offensive weapon. We are going there peacefully to do our peaceful picketing. We will go there even if they are supposed to kill us because we are even dying in our various homes.”
“We are not going to go back to the house and be telling the government to pay us our arrears. While the programme is still in existence, before September 1, we will demand what is ours. The government does not need enough time to come to our aid. The government has had 8 months to do what is expected.”
Mr. Aseidu was disappointed that the government had neglected the trainees when all government appointees continue to draw salaries. “Why are NABCo trainees not being paid? We all know that the allowances are not as huge as salaries. Why is it that NABCo trainees are not being paid for the past 10 months? We do not deserve this.”
“We are dying. No force, I repeat, no force would stop us from going to the Jubilee House. If after August 26 we haven’t heard anything, we will leave our houses for the Jubilee House. They should kill us and bury us because that would be far better.”
