Trainees of the government flagship program Nations Builder’s corp, Nabco have made an appeal to government over permanent placements.
The hard pressed graduates expressed their grievances in an interview with leakynews.net stating that, “in fact we are grateful to the Npp government for such a wonderful initiative, the Nation Builder’s Corp which has lessoned the burdens on our families after years of idleness after completion of school. However we need a permanent job. We can’t go home after our three years, stay and still become a problem to our families and community. We are pleading to the government to give us permanent placement”.
Moreover, the aggrieved trainees narrated that, government, Module Implemebtation Partners (MIPs) as well as Nabco Secretariat must come clear on their plans before the three-year contract expires.
The spokesperson For Mensa indicated “its very painful when we hear of colleagues been given clearance to be recruited as permanent staff. We are calling on the goverement , the MIPs as well as the Nabco secretariat to make it clear and if not possible to absorb all Nabco Trainees, at least allocate specific qouta or slot for Nabco Trainees in all public sector recruitments before the end of 2020 or we will advice ourselves”.
In addition to their grievance, these frustrated graduates disclosed the statement made by Nana Addo which they underlined as affirmative to their claim;
“Thus far, THE MODULE IMPLEMENTATION PARTNERS have fulfilled their part of the bargain, I will commend them for their partnership of the scheme and will appeal to them to recognize and reward the sacrifice made by Trainees. They should be the first to be considered when opportunities for permanent employment come out”, a statement by H.E Nana Addo Dankwa.
The exit plan for Nabco Trainees is sketchy. We have just a year left for our contract to expire so we are appealling to government to come out plainly on the fate of Nabco Trainees and work around the clock before the contract ends. It will be quite unfortunate for us to move back to unemployed. Nabco because the jobs aren’t available”.
