The Nation Builders Corps Secretariat, NABco, has asked trainees to remain at Post.
The decision, it stated, was issued following a high-level conference with implementation partners led by Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and Chief of Staff Akosua Frema Opare.
The latest instruction represents a significant U-turn after NABCO’s National Coordinator, Dr. Ibrahim Anyars, declared that the trainees’ three-year contract will not be extended.
He even outlined the program’s exit strategy for trainees.
But in the new notice to the trainees dated November 15, 2021, the NABCO secretariat said, “following a high-level Stakeholder meeting with the lead NABCO Module Implementation Partners (MIPs) led by His Excellency the Vice President of the Republic of Ghana and The Honourable Chief of Staff, all NABCO trainees are required to remain at post.”
It is unclear for how long the trainees are expected to remain at post, but the statement said it will be until “permanent arrangements” are made.
The statement said, NABCO Secretariat expects trainees to continue to discharge their duties diligently and professionally at their various workplaces whilst the scheme and the MIPs work towards a smooth final transition.”
Meanwhile, according to the announcement, a new batch of NABCO trainees will be recruited in 2022.
