NaBCo trainees protest delayed allowances

Some beneficiaries of the government’s Nation Builders Corps (NABCo) programme on Thursday hit the streets to protest a delay in the payment of their allowances.

They marched from the Obra Spot at the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange and ended the march at Independence Square where their leaders addressed them.

Their concerns are that, some of their allowances are in arrears for close to six months.

Besides, they argue that the three exit strategies for the programme, are not working.

The three exit strategies are being maintained in various institutions as permanent employees, being sent back to school, or given support to start their own businesses.

In all these three exit plans, they said the government has not been forthcoming with answers.

The hundreds of the protesters held placards through the principal streets in Accra.
