NABCO trainees appeal for permanent jobs

The leadership of the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) has made an appeal to the government to convert their placements in various institutions into permanent engagements at the end of the three-year contract period.

In an interview, Dennis Opoku Katakyie and Jacklin Okyere Darko, National President and Secretary respectively of the Association of NABCO Trainees, indicated that much as they appreciated the bold initiative of President Akufo-Addo in providing jobs for 100,000 unemployed graduates across the country, they humbly appeal to him to go the extra- mile to make them productive and beneficial to the Ghanaian society, by retaining them at the expiry of their contact.

“When we leave, the vacancies would definitely be filled by engaging new hands, so why not retain us to use the experience and knowledge acquired on our various jobs, to serve our nation to the best of our abilities and continue to free our families and relatives of financial burdens”, they maintained.

The group leaders in this regard urged their colleagues to put up the best behavour and work diligently to win the trust and confidence of their various superiors under whom they served to merit their recommendations.

They also urged Ghanaians to appreciate the efforts of President Akufo Addo’s government in steering the affairs of the nation and rally solidly behind him, especially in this Covid-19 times, so that he would achieve the best for Ghanaians.
