In a statement released on Friday, May 17, 2019, the Coalition of NABCo Trainees (CONAT) stated “leaders of the coalition haven’t relented or compromised our legitimate fight for the betterment of trainees’ conditions of service under this initiative.”

CONAT’s national president, Nana Barimah Asamoah in an interview, said some trainees under the program have not been paid their stipends for both March and April 2019, and others are yet to receive allowances from November 2018 to April 2019.

“We have borrowed and most of us owe MTN Qwikloan. Me for instance, my repayment date was due but I could not pay and they slapped 12% charge on it again. We are not fighting anybody but we just want to be paid,” he added.

Per a report by Mynewsgh.com, he noted that trainees could only be satisfied and grateful if their demands are fully met with all arrears paid.
