A Coalition of Aggrieved Nation Builders Corps (NABCo) trainees say they are hitting the streets across the country today, Thursday, to protest the non-payment of their allowances. They are also complaining about government’s failure to implement the promised career pathway transition programme before the 2020 election.
“We agreed that the demonstration should take effect on February 17. All the necessary arrangements have been made for Thursday”, President of the Coalition Nana Barimah Asamoah announced.
The Coalition says allowances for NABCo trainees have been in arrears for six months, while their colleagues who are nurses working under the Ghana Module Programme are owed ten months in arrears.
The situation, Nana Asamoah said, has made life very unbearable for them.
“We are not hitting the streets for only the arrears that have engulfed the scheme. If you could recall, before the 2020 general elections, the President promised us heavily that we will be maintained in our corporate job environment and so they introduced something called the career pathway transition process, which was to usher us into the permanent mainstream job. That promise has not been fulfilled.”
Some of the aggrieved trainees stated that the delay in paying their allowances has forced them to rely on credit from friends and family members, much to their displeasure.
Meanwhile, the Coalition has agreed to comply with the police directives to ensure a peaceful demonstration on Thursday.Share on:
