Not one to rest on his oars, Mr Ablakwa has again gone to the aid of personnel of the Nation Builders Corps programme (NABCo), whose fate hung in the balance after the program's expiration.
Life for the 97 NABCo personnel in his constituency looked bleak, but that has given way to hope.
The MP announced on his social media handle how he had lobbied a Chinese firm in his constituency to employ all the NaBCo beneficiaries immediately.
"I am delighted to announce that I have successfully negotiated with the Chinese management of Sinostone Bioethanol Manufacturing Ltd (SBML) located in my beloved North Tongu, to immediately employ all our 97 NaBCo beneficiaries," he said on his Facebook page on Thursday, September 1, 2022.
The NABCo programme was originally earmarked to run for three years but was extended later for another year.
The Programme was aimed at giving temporary employment to over 100,000 young graduates.
Though the Akufo-Addo-led government invested some GH¢2.2 billion into the policy, most of the beneficiaries lamented the non-payment of allowances and, in some instances, hit the streets in protest.
