Govt slashes allowance for Youth in Afforestation staff over NABCo

Government has slashed the allowances of the staff of the Youth in Afforestation program in order to accommodate the cost involved in paying workers of the newly introduced Nation Builders Corps (NABCo).

The allowance for supervisors, according to Starr News sources, has been slashed from the monthly GHC1,200.00 to GHC700.00.

A statement from the Director Operations of the program Hugh Brown  said: “ the allowances for beneficiaries have been revised in order to align compensation package of the program with other related initiatives as the Nation Builders Corps”.

The revise allowances will take effect from October 1,2018. Beneficiaries are to accept the revised over in writing before they will be covered for payment.
