NABCO trainees threaten demonstration over delayed allowances

Some trainees with the Nation Builders Corps, NABCO, have threatened to hit the streets in a peaceful march on Monday if the government does not pay arrears owed them.

Some of the over hundred trainees, who either had issues with their E-zwich numbers or bank accounts, say they were promised that they were going to be paid by June 5th.

Convener for the group of NABCo recruits, Alexander Ofosu told Citi News they believe a peaceful protest will draw government’s attention to their plight.

“We have not still been paid. We want to emphasis our anger by going on a peaceful demonstration to remind the NABCo secretariat that we are still starving and hungry. We are going to have a peaceful walk so they hear our cry,” he said.

In May 2019, Leaders of the Coalition of Nation Builders’ Corps (NABCO) Trainees, expressed disappointment over the failure of their members to show up for a planned demonstration.

The group was expected to march from the Kwame Nkrumah Circle Interchange to the Jubilee House in protest over the non-payment of their allowances for several months.

However, hours after the scheduled start time, only about a dozen out of the expected one thousand trainees, turned up at the meeting point.
