The National Organizer hopeful for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Mr Yaw Boateng Gyan, has commended the government for the initiative to get the un-employed graduates to work.
Wofa Yaw Boateng-Gyan, commenting on the sustainability of the program, said although it is a good one, this is not the first time an initiative of this nature has been introduced in the country and therefore, there is no need for his oponents to over jubilate,but to rather ensure it’s sustainability.
Answering questions posed by the Dinpa Anopa Bosuo sit-in-host Nana Akosua Ansah today,Mr Yaw Boateng Gyan said there’s no way this NABCo thing is going to prevent the Ghanaian Youth to ignore the good message of the NDC nor vote against them.
He stated that, he (Yaw Boateng Gyan) is of the fullest conviction that,the Youth can troop in to benefit from the stipend of NABCo, but will surely welcome the good message of national development of the NDC in 2020.
Because the program is not permanent, he thinks it is time the Youth are trained to establish their own businesses rather than always depending on the government for employment, and that is what the NDC is in to offer.
Commenting on the same show, Mr Frank Musah Damtarl-Sunyani east NPP Chair and the Brong Ahafo regional secretary for the Convention People’s Party (CPP) Mr Ebenezer Agbenya unanimously, called on the leadership of every institution to make good use of the NABCo personel by unearthing their potentials, urging the personel to also give off their best in their 3-years service so they can be retained when their term expires .
President Akufo-Addo introduced the Nation Builder’s Corps as an alternative job creation opportunity for the country’s jobless graduates.
NABCo, which was launched IN May 2018, runs under six modules namely Educate Ghana, Revenue Ghana, Heal Ghana, Enterprise Ghana, Digital Ghana, Feed Ghana and Civic Ghana
The programe also forms part of government’s commitment towards addressing the high unemployment in the country.
The programe, which will be managed by the office of the President, will focus on alleviating shortfalls in public service delivery.
