Angry and unpaid workers of government’s much-touted Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) have threatened to stage a nationwide demonstration if government continues to refuse paying their allowances.
They have given the Akufo Addo administration an ultimatum till Friday October 17, 2019 to pay them or face their wrath.
The threat follows several demands made by the trainees to their employer to release their allowances which they say have not been paid since May 2019.
“The plan was to go mass up at the national theatre where they are holding a durbar in peaceful manner…If we do not hear anything from them from today, we will embark on a nationwide demonstration,” one of the agitated NABCO trainees told Accra-based Citi News.
Agitations over unpaid allowances has become a constant feature of the NABCO initiative set up by the Akufo Addo administration to get jobs for over 100,000 unemployed graduates.
A few months ago, another group of unpaid workers in the corps staged a demonstration over their unpaid allowances.
The group had earlier petitioned their employer to release their allowances which had not been paid since November 2018.
The management of NABCo described the threat to demonstrate as needless.
