Government reschedules start of NABCO programme

Government has announced that the postings for graduates of the Nation Builder Corps (NABCO) programme will start from November 1.

Government arrived at this decision following concerns that the 100,000 recruits have not been assigned to their duty posts less than 48 hours for them to start work.

According to the NABCO Coordinator, Dr. Ibrahim Anyars beneficiaries will commence work by November 1, blaming the delay on the rigorous process to identify where their services are most needed.

We are currently placing the applicants within the institutions [they are needed] with the collaboration of our module implementation partners,” he told Samson Lardy Anyenini on MultiTV/Joy FM’s news analysis programme Newsfile Saturday.

According to him, the discussions are finished with all module partners to be ready to welcome the graduates from November 1.

President Akufo-Addo ushered the recruits into the programme last Wednesday at an elaborate ceremony at the Black Star Square in Accra.

Start dates of August, October 1, and October 15 have already been missed.

One beneficiary, Esther Lamptey, who spoke on Newsfile said she’s still unsure where she was being posted to, just hours for her to report to work.

As of now, if even we are fit to work, I am sure they will have to train us first before we know what we are going to do for our respective offices of posting,” she said.

According to Ms Lamptey, they were assured that at the grounds of the graduation ceremony, they can verify their postings.

I think the event was only to get us there because that was not done. As of now, we have not heard anything regarding when our postings are coming out and when we are starting work,” she said.

Allaying any fears, the NaBCO Coordinator said there is no ambiguity, those who chose a preferred district will be placed to work with an institution in that district.

Meanwhile, governance analyst Dr. Eric Oduro Osae wants government to empower the district assemblies to be able to absorb some of the beneficiaries once the three-year program ends.
