NABCO Trainees urged not to pay any amount to Coordinators – NABCO Secretariat
Our attention has been drawn to a circular indicating some NaBCo trainees being coerced by their district coordinators to pay an unwarranted amount of money ranging from 30 – 100 cedis to facilitate their permanency.
This is an act of extortion; and it is highly unacceptable; Hence condemnable.
No trainee under any circumstance must grease anyone’s elbow; circumstances include – signing of timesheet, payment of arrears, being made permanent e.t.c
Even though investigations are ongoing, you are encouraged to report such unscrupulous district coordinators to the regional coordinators.
You can as well comment if your coordinator is one of these bad apples.
The Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) programme is a government initiative to address graduate unemployment to solve social problems. The focus of the initiative will be solving public service delivery in health, education, agriculture, technology, governance and drive revenue mobilization and collection.
The objectives of the programme are to:
- Provide temporary employment to unemployed graduates
- Improve skills and employability for transition from programme to permanent employment
- Improve public service delivery
- Improve on government revenue mobilization
- To provide needed infrastructure to improve access to basic public services
This new scheme – the Nation Builders Corps recognizes the role played by other pathways that currently exist under various government institutions and agencies. In a sense, NABCO ultimately offers a convergence for the employment initiatives landscape. Among the existing Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) with schemes addressed to youth unemployment include: the Ministry for Business Development, Ministry for Local Government and Rural Administration, the National Vocational and Technical Institute (NVTI), Council for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (COTVET), the National Youth Authority (NYA), and the Youth Employment Agency (YEA), and the National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Plan (NEIP) to cite some examples. In particular, the YEA has affected, positively, the lives of many non-tertiary graduates through the innovative modules that have continued to engage lots of young people. In the case of the NABCO, the distinguishing element would be its concentration on addressing the growing phenomenon of unemployment and disillusionment among young people leaving tertiary institutions.
