The Economic Fighters League (EFL) is warning beneficiaries of government’s flagship programme aimed at addressing the country’s unemployment problem, the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO), to hold their breaks in jubilating over their recruit since the politicians have proven it is not good.
Yesterday, government commissioned the first 100,000 batch of recruits who have been placed under various modules under the Corps.
Speaking on “Ete Sen” on Radio XYZ on Thursday October, 18, Commander in Chief of the Economic Fighters League, Ernesto Yeboah observed that, no politician has had his ward or relative recruited into the corps, an attestation that “the politicians themselves know it is not good.”
He asserts “The politicians know what is good for them. Weren’t we here when Osafo Marfo said the public sector is full but within that same period his two children got employed into public institutions?” “Because it is not for them, we should also not see it as good. It is a social intervention but we should move to a permanent solution” he argues.
Mr Yeboah also noted that there are fundamental problems underlining the Corps including the lack of insurance and transportation packages for beneficiaries. He thus challenged government to prove its commitment to making the corps a worthwhile venture by providing incentive packages to safeguard the future of beneficiaries after the 3 years of their contract ends.
