One of the spokespersons for the coalition of NABCO recruits was quoted as saying: “They keep on saying that the delay in the payments is from the trainees but we believe it is not true. Palpable lies. Almost every month, even those teaching in the villages, they have to come to the city and do the updates and go back.”

However, the NABCO secretariat is upset with the coalition’s posturing over the matter. National Coordinator of NABCO, Dr. Ibrahim Anyars said the aggrieved recruits were not following due process.

“Ninety-four thousand people have been paid. How did we get that done? Through the media? Definitely not. They know what to do if they are true NABCO trainees to get their pay issues and other problems that they have…resolved," Anyars said.
