Dr Anyars says 94,000 NABCO Trainees have been paid and Demonstration doesn’t make sense

A group calling itself the Coalition of NABCo [Nation Builders Corps] trainees, says thousands of its members across the country will throng the Obra Spot in Accra on Friday, April 12 to protest over their unpaid allowances.

The trainees told Citi News they have been compelled to protest over undue delays in the payment of their allowances.

The recruits are entitled to a GHS 700 monthly stipend.

Abubakar Sidic, the National Secretary of the coalition said some of their members “are going through a lot of hell.”

“They keep on saying that the delay in the payments is from the trainees but we believe it is not true. Palpable lies. Almost every month, even those teaching in the villages, they have to come to the city and do the updates and go back.”

The NABCO secretariat is however upset with the coalition’s posturing over the matter.

The Coordinator of NABCO, Dr. Ibrahim Anyars said the aggrieved recruits were not following due process.

“Ninety-four thousand [94,000] people have been paid. How did we get that done? Through the media? Definitely not. They know what to do if they are true NABCO trainees to get their pay issues and other problems that they have…resolved.”

“So I am very upset about what they are seeking to gain from this needless attention because it doesn’t make sense to me,” he said to Citi News.

Some recruits have been complaining since January 2019 over unpaid allowances.

Some  passed out in October 2018 commissioned under seven modules which include Feed Ghana, Educate Ghana, Revenue Ghana, Heal Ghana, Enterprise Ghana, Digitise Ghana and Governance Ghana.
