The Nation Builders Corps, NABCO is a social intervention programme introduced by the government to help reduce graduate unemployment.
The three-year programme was introduced in May 2018, giving the first batch of 100,000 unemployed, temporary and experienced building job opportunities.
The Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) is readying itself to facilitate the successful exit and seamless transition of the first batch of beneficiaries into permanent employment.
It said already, 11,000 personnel had transitioned into their chosen future careers since deployment and were doing well.
In an up-close with the Head of Accounts for the NABCO, Mr. Emmanuel Aidoo said NABCO is making plans to increase the salary of its personnel from GHc700.00 to GH¢900.00 for every month which will contribute to an Annual Gross of GH¢11,100.00.
The academy would provide specialist training opportunities that would add value to the basic qualifications of the personnel both in school and on the programme.
With regards to why the salaries of this personnel are not been paid for more than three (3) months, Mr Aidoo replied with a sense of optimism in his voice as he assured of Government’s plan to pay them by the end of the month.
He, therefore, shared sentiments on the delay as he assured all those at the post to go online and download the app and make sure to sign in and out on daily basis as that checks will be used in payment.
