NABCO Will Not Be Canceled – NABCO Boss Denys Ken Ofori-Atta’s Report



The Deputy Ashanti Regional Coordinator of the Nation Builders Corps (NaBCO) has indicated that the program will not be canceled contrary to the assertions of Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Attah.

Speaking on the Ultimate Breakfast Show, Wilfred Owusu Gyasi pointed out that enrolling a fresh cohort unto the temporal graduate employment scheme, was not off the table.

“NaBCo as a program is not being canceled. It is the first cohort of the program which has seven models with a contractual arrangement of three years which was extended which is coming to an end on the first of September. NaBco will exist. All the 263 districts will exist and I will not be in the office doing nothing,” he stated.

Responding in the Affirmative, after insisting he will not want to take the wind out of the sails of his organization, Mr. Owusu Gyasi responded “yes, Certainly”: to the question of whether or not a new cohort will be engaged.

The assertion from the NABCO boss appears to contradict the position of Finance Minister Ken Ofori Attah who insisted the program which had cost the state 2.2 billion, will fold up in September.

The Finance Minister was emphatic that tens of thousands of graduates who were engaged between three and four years should take advantage of the upcoming YouStart program to start their own businesses.

Wilfred Owusu Gyasi further gave assurances all arrears owed the 30 thousand personnel who enjoyed the 1-year extension, will be settled.

He told host Julius Caesar Anadem, “All arrears for those 30 thousand who are still at post and working will be paid. There is a roadmap for payment of those monies.”

The NaBCo boss asserted that the program was a ten billion cedi program that had already made provisions of some 599 million cedis in the 2018 budget as prepayment for all salary arrears to be offset but for the revenue challenges that the government has suffered.
