The Coalition of Nation Builders Corps trainees has lamented and kicked against the government’s decision to freeze public sector employment effective January 2023..
The coalition lamented the government’s lack of interest to absorb beneficiaries into mainstream employment after their three-year contract with the government ended on September 1, 2022..
Speaking after the presentation of the budget, the President of the Coalition of Nation Builders Corps, Nana Barima said the announcement comes as a disappointment to them since the government promised to absorb them into the public sector two years ago.
The fact that government initially reneged to mechanize NABCO trainees, is very disappointing
Before the 2020 elections, we had a solid promise from the government that those who were interested in the public sector will be mechanized
But after the elections, government couldn’t actualize the promise.”
The Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) program was a government initiative to address graduate unemployment to solve social problems.
