The first set of The Nation Builders Corps ( NABCO ) trainees sees their contracts expire with their various institutions at the end of the month.
It is quite unclear for the trainees whether they are to be maintained or completely go back to being unemployed.
Many of the trainees whose contracts expire this October remain worried over the current situation where no proper communication about their future has been made.
During the phone-in segment on Maakye’s segment ‘Kawasem’ on Kessben FM/TV, most of the trainees expressed their dissatisfaction over the situation.
According to the trainees, they simply want to know the real situation on the grounds relating to their future to make the necessary life decisions in their next move.
Reacting to the calls, Omanhene Yaw Adu Boakye urged the government to as a matter of urgency come with a detailed explanation of the real situation to the trainees.
The larger-than-life morning show host queried whether the trainees’ 3 years of service have become an exercise in futility.
The Public Relations Officer of The Nation Builders Corp, Tahiru Idrrisu Abdulai speaking on the Show could not confirm whether the trainees will be maintained or otherwise. He urged the trainees to be patient as modalities to the next phase are still being deliberated on.
The Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) programme is a government initiative to address graduate unemployment to solve social problems. The focus of the initiative will be solving public service delivery in health, education, agriculture, technology, governance, and drive revenue mobilization and collection.
