President Nana Akufo-Addo has asked the various Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) currently engaging the services of personnel of the Nations Builders Corps (NABCo) to give them priority when filling vacancies.
Nana Akufo-Addo said NABCo personnel across the country have demonstrated a high level of commitment and dedication in their line of duty and must, therefore, be prioritized.
Speaking at the first-anniversary celebration of NABCo in Accra, President Akufo-Addo noted that the initiative has been beneficial to the development of the youth.
Meanwhile, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Nation Builders Corps, Dr. Ibrahim Anyass says the 11,000 personnel had been trained by NABCo for the job market.
He indicated that all those beneficiaries have exited the program to secure permanent employment.
Some beneficiaries of the NABCO say the initiative has significantly impacted their livelihoods and has adequately prepared them for the job market.
Aside from the positive testimonies, the non-payments of allowances have been one of the challenges that beneficiaries of the program face.
They have threatened to embark on a number of protests to press home their demands.
