Khan Issahaku Jambeidu, the current Upper East Region Coordinator of the Nation Builders’ Corps (NABCO), has urged trainees in the program to remain calm.
While the stipends have been delayed for a long time, he admitted that whatever is owed to the trainees will be paid soon.
Mr. Jambeidu expressed his sympathies with the trainees, explaining that his aim would have been to see trainees paid before the Christmas holidays began, but that this may not be possible this year.
He mentioned this today, December 23, 2021, during an interview with Samuel Mbura on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East in Bolgatanga.
“As you are aware, we are experiencing an unusually long delay in the payment of stipends. We have not yet paid, which is a source of concern for us. But we’re always up to the challenge and working on it,” he said.
He stated that the trainees owing stipends for September, October, November, and December will be paid as soon as possible.
To refresh your memory, the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) is a government project aimed at addressing graduate unemployment and addressing societal issues.
The initiative’s main goals will be to improve public service delivery in the areas of health, education, agriculture, technology, and governance, as well as to increase revenue mobilization and collection.
