Kennedy Agyapong, a business mogul and representative for Ghana’s Central region’s Assin Central seat, has said that the Nabco Trainees’ only option for getting the government to pay their seven months’ worth of arrears is to protest.
The agitated member of the ruling New Patriotic Party advised to the trainees to hit the streets to demand the payment of their arrears in an interview with GTV that was seen by GhNews6.com.
The congressman criticized the government for failing to pay the poor Nabco Trainees their allowances after ordering them to resume work despite the expiry of their contract.
“I decide that only protest can end their argument. I am sorry for their injuries; you cannot hire someone and fail to pay them. This is utter wickedness. The senator said, “The government must compensate them as quickly as possible.
The businessman emphasized that the government had not treated the trainees with respect since the program’s inception. He said the Nabco secretariat should be working to address the issue.
Under his direction, H. E. Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo Addo launched the government’s flagship initiative, The Nations Builders Corp., to close the unemployment gap.
Following that, it was launched in 2018 with 100,000 trainees receiving work opportunities in the public and commercial sectors under seven modules, including Civic Ghana, Enterprise Ghana, Revenue Ghana, Heal Ghana, Educate Ghana, Feed Ghana, and Digitize Ghana.
