President Akufo-Addo has directed government ministries, departments and agencies to give preferential treatment to recruits of the Nation Builders Corps (NABCo) when it comes to employment.
Speaking at the 1st-anniversary ceremony of NABCo in Accra, the president said the sacrifices made by the recruits in serving the nation for the past year, as well as the experiences they have gathered within the period, make them merit such preferential treatment.
Akufo-Addo said across all the sectors of our national life are examples of such positive stories of valuable contributions by our young NABCo trainees.

“They should be the first to be considered when opportunities for permanent employment come up”, the President directed.
The president added that not only does the employment of the beneficiaries assist with their growth, but it also helps to secure Ghana's collective future.
