NABCO Stipend Payment Updates
Speaking on Bolgatanga-based A1 Radio, the Upper East Regional Coordinator of NABCO said the stipends for the trainees owed in September, October, November, and December will be paid as soon as possible.
“As you are aware, we are experiencing an unusually long delay in the payment of stipends. We have not yet paid, which is a source of concern for us. But we’re always up to the challenge and working on it,” he said.
Meanwhile, on December 25, 2021, some Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) beneficiaries took to Twitter to demand payment of their 4 months arrears owed them by government.
The beneficiaries are demanding that government pay them to enable them to support themselves during this yuletide.
These demands have caused #NABCO to top trends as number one in Ghana.
Some beneficiaries who took to Twitter wrote, “We don’t know the kind wrong we did as nabco interns to deserve this kind of treatment in our mother land. Hmmn There’s nothing more painful than when it’s at the end of the year and you cannot get your old parents a small bag of rice. What a shame it is.” YawNabco tweeted.
“NABCO personnel, Christmas Christmas tree fa wo B3n Cat face with tears of joyCat face with tears of joyCat face with tears of joy, 4 months you haven’t been paid how to u even call home House with garden” Naturewaa added.
“You didn’t pay NABCO personnels. How do you feel when you and your family are enjoying the Christmas whilst they languish in pain Mr. President?”
