Regional Hospital Dumps NABCO Beneficiaries In Upper West

The Upper West Regional Director of the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) has practically dumped beneficiaries of the program in the Upper West Regional Hospital.

In a short letter from the Medical Director of the Hospital, Dr. Robert Amesiya, the NABCO regional director is told that the duration of the program has run out and that he is being sent the beneficiaries to keep until further notice.

“Following your contractual agreement to end the services of NABCO beneficiaries in the various institutions on 31st October 2021, we are by this letter releasing all NABCO beneficiaries to you with effect from 1st November 2021 for further action. By this letter, NABCO beneficiaries posted this hospital are informed to stay off until further notice,” the letter said.

This letter from the Upper West Regional Hospital is one of many sent to NABCO beneficiaries who are being let go by institutions that they had been attached to.

After the honeymoon, the hard reality that NABCO jobs are not forever has set in as many institutions send them home.

The Akufo-Addo government had started the NABCO program a so-called stop-gap measure for 100,000 unemployed graduates.

The transience of the program has been criticized as a window-dressing of the country’s unemployment problem but the government has countered the criticism, claiming it has plans to employ all NABCO employees.

Interestingly, the letters offloading employees are coming at a time that the Finance Minister has urged university graduates to look to anywhere but the government for jobs.
