He said the programme was not a duplication of other youth employment schemes like the Youth Employment Agency which was introduced under the National Democratic Congress government.
He further explained that the programme formed part of the Akufo-Addo government's move towards addressing the increasing spate of youth unemployment in the country.
Government is expected to pay the recruits an amount of Gh₵ 700 at the end of the month.
Speaking at the passing out ceremony of the nation builders corps on October 17, 2018, President Nana Akufo-Addo, urged them to work hard and contribute their quota to the development of the country.
He reminded the recruits that the monthly stipend which was going to be given them at the end of the month was not for free and that they needed to work hard and be committed to their work.
Akufo-Addo expressed optimism that the country would benefit from the services of the recruits who would be working under the various modules under this programme.
