National Organiser of the opposition National Democratic Congress, Kofi Adams, has described government’s Nation Builder’s Corps (NABCO) as a repeated initiative.
According to him, the initiative will deplete the country’s resources.
Government introduced the NABCO initiative as part of its commitment towards addressing the high youth unemployment in the country.
Already, 100,000 recruits of NABCO have successfully passed out today, Wednesday, October 17, 2018 in Accra.
But speaking on Citi TV’s Breakfast Daily, Mr. Adams maintained that NABCO should have been run under already existent systems like the Youth Employment Agency (YEA).
NaBCo programme is unsustainable – Ade Coker
The Greater Accra Regional Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Ade Coker, has also said the programme is unsustainable.
According to him, jobs to be provided under the programme are momentary, and will not enable young people to build a career nor address the challenge of unemployment in the country.
He stated that the youth to be employed under NABCO would go back to be jobless after a short period because the jobs NABCO is offering are not permanent jobs.
