An aspiring National Youth Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has accused officials of the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) programme of recruiting graduates without certificates.
George Opare-Addo said most of the applicants are members of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) who lack qualification, a situation he says doesn’t speak well of a government that claims to have every Ghanaian at heart.
“I see NABCO as a way of giving internship opportunities to all NPP members when that was not what they promised. NPP is doing exactly the opposite of what they promised in opposition. I have evidence to support my claim that so many of them do not have the qualification,” he said.
“I challenge the Public Service Commission to come and debunk my claim; who are they lying to,” he asked on Asempa FM’s Eksoii Sen Wednesday.
The President, Nana Akufo-Addo, recently launched the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO), which is expected to employ, in this year, some 100,000 young men and women to assist in the public sector service delivery needs of Ghana.
But the former Municipal Chief Executive of Akuapem North believes the initiative is rather a move by the Akufo Addo-led government to deceive the youth.
Admitting that the policy is good, Mr Opare Addo insists it is not a panacea to unemployment in Ghana.
