Some members of the ation Builders Corps (NABCo) are threatening to sleep at the offices of the secretariat if their allowances are not paid.
The group took to the streets and massed up at the NABCo secretariat in Accra on Monday, March 11, 2019.
Speaking to Citi TV, the NABCo recruits expressed frustration at the delays in the payment of their allowances.
“Until they pay us, we are not leaving the NABCo premises. When you go there, they tell you the money will come meanwhile they are paying our colleagues. The most painful aspect of it is that, those who are at home and have not received placement yet, they have been paid but those of us who are on the field and actually working have not been paid,” one of the recruits said.
They also opined that they have met all the requirements for payment of the allowance.
In January 2019, some NABCo recruits complained that they had not received their allowances since the program begun.
But the Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said the delay in the payment was due to inaccurate data on the payroll.

He added that the recruits will be paid if their information is updated. “Their December and regular stipends are also programmed to be paid immediately afterwards,” he said.
