NABCO: Nana Akomea ‘fumes’ NPP government over nonpayment of trainee alawa.


Nation Builders Corps (NABCo) trainees have been complaining for months about their allowances not being paid, and the government has not been paying attention to them.

They have expressed their dissatisfaction to the administration through conferences and news releases, as well as requests for a hearing, but to no avail.

The Corps’ public relations officer, Eric Nana Takyi, stated in an interview with OnuaOnline on Friday, June 07, 2024, that the government owed them 11 months at the time they were laid off from their respective positions in September 2022, with the remaining two months being paid to them thereafter.

The government still owes NABCo employees arrears of up to nine months. They allowed the government a month to pay the arrears but the announcement never made it public, released on Monday, December 4, 2023.

“We have already lost trust in Nana Addo/Bawumia led government. All we need now is 9 months arrears fully settled as we don’t want to have any business to do with this government again.”, the group said in the press statement signed by Frank Evans Quansah, Secretary for the Coalition of NABCo trainees.

The trainees also asked the government to put an end to hailing the NABCo scheme, which they said was non-functional.

On Thursday, in response to the news, Nana Akomea said on 3FM’s Sunrise with Johnnie Hughes that the government is greatly stigmatised by its unwillingness to pay the arrears.

“The government needs to address this stigma right away. I’m proposing that the government should pay them to make the necessary corrections right away. It causes humiliation. He added, “And I’m hoping they get paid very soon.
