NABCO beneficiaries give gov’t 3-week ultimatum to settle arrears

The government of Ghana has been given a 3-week ultimatum to settle 9 months’ worth of arrears owed to the beneficiaries of the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO).

This demand follows a pledge made by Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Vice President and NPP flagbearer, during his campaign in the Volta Region on June 2, 2024, to address the overdue payments, a promise that remains unfulfilled.

The Coalition of NABCO Trainees expressed their frustration and disappointment in a statement released on Monday, June 24, calling attention to Dr. Bawumia’s continued silence on the matter.

The statement emphasized the beneficiaries’ mounting anxiety as they await the fulfillment of the Vice President’s campaign promise.

Speaking on NEWS LINK on A1 Radio, Frank Quansah, National Secretary of the Coalition of NABCO Trainees, made it clear that the trainees’ patience is wearing thin. “We are giving the government a 3-week ultimatum to release funds for the payment of the NABCO beneficiaries. If by 3 weeks’ time we have not heard anything from the government, we are going to organize a demonstration against Mr. Bawumia and his government,” Mr. Quansah stated.

He further warned that if the government does not address their concerns following the demonstration, the beneficiaries would mobilize to vote against Dr. Bawumia and the NPP in the upcoming elections. “If that is not heeded, we are waiting for the 2024 elections. All things that we are going through, we will equalize it against them by voting against them,” Mr. Quansah added.

The NABCO program was launched in 2018 with the aim to provide jobs to unemployed graduates and help them gain experience and skills. However, the Coalition of NABCO lamented that the delay in payments has caused significant hardship for many of the beneficiaries who relied on their stipends for basic needs.
