An extension of their service period by government has not been followed with the necessary financial commitment as many of them are yet to be paid in the past six months.

 

Recently, some trainees took to social media to demand payment of their allowance arrears, saying life has become unbearable for them.

Some also blamed the government for abandoning them, adding that they have been “perishing in extreme hunger and deprivation.”

“I depend on my parents for survival; so, as a NABCo trainee, life has been very unbearable, and as you know, we have been in the corporate environment for a while.”

“Three years now, and honestly speaking, just last week some sections of trainees received September and October allowances, but they were paid selectively,” a beneficiary told JoyNews in an interview.

Meanwhile, the Minority spokesperson on Employment, Dr Kwabena Donkor, has asked the government to pay the trainees immediately.

“We are aware of the concerns about non-payment of allowance for close to seven months, and we have articulated same at the plenary.”

“Therefore, we believe the state has a responsibility to honour its contract,” he noted.

On Friday, February 11, the Management of NABCo announced that the allowance arrears for Career Path Training Programme (CPTP) and ‘Heal Ghana’ trainees have been processed for payment.

Some of the beneficiaries under those batches have been paid.

“Kindly note that a section of ‘Revenue Ghana’ will be paid after this first batch of payments. Any arrears owed will equally be processed and paid subsequently,” a notice from NABCo Management added.
