Beneficiaries of government’s Nation Builders Corps program will take to the street on Friday May 10, 2019, to protest against inferior working conditions and over unpaid salaries.
NABCo beneficiaries will on Friday flood the streets of Accra to express disapproval over poor working conditions and delayed salaries which are long overdue.
The beneficiaries will be attired in red to compel government to address their concerns without any further delays.
The coalition, during the protest issued a communiqué on [today] Monday May 6, 2019.
They say their decision to hit the street has been necessitated by government’s repeated failure to respond to their complaints regarding some 5-month unpaid salaries.
They intend to coerce government via Friday’s demonstration and to register their frustrations as well as demand speedy action from relevant stakeholders.
NABCo members, who have been enrolled on eight different modules of the programme, have been working since its inception in November 2018 but say some have not received their GH¢700 monthly stipend, which required a nationwide demonstration to press on government to address their concerns.
The Coalition however initially planed to demonstrate on Wednesday May 8, 2019, was rescheduled to Friday May 10, 2019, as a result of information from the Ghana police service to the effect that Friday will be a more convenient date for the deployment of police personnel for the protests.
