President Akufo-Addo has urged the 100 thousand Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) recruits to be diligent and punctual at work as they begin their postings to the respective institutions.
The President has also advised the recruits to live beyond reproach at their work stations.
“I admonish our NABCO trainees to be dutiful and productive. You must show your professional credentials to timeliness and punctuality. Live beyond reproach,” the President told the recruits at the official launch of the program at the Black Star Square in Accra Wednesday.
The NABCO initiative government is to tackle the rising unemployment in the country.
The beneficiaries have been put in the Civic Ghana, Revenue Ghana, Educate Ghana, Enterprise Ghana and Digitise Ghana modules of the programme.
In all, 100,000 people are to be enrolled onto the programme for the first year.
In an exclusive interview, the Chief Executive Officer of NaBCo, Dr Ibrahim Anyars, said the applicants who had been notified were those whose credentials, including educational background and national service, had been verified.
On Tuesday, May 1, this year, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo launched the NaBCo in Kumasi as an initiative by the government to provide employment for 100,000 unemployed graduates this year.
The programme is initially intended to operate seven modules designed to meet the pressing needs of the nation, while providing jobs for the teeming youth who have received tertiary education but are struggling to find jobs, partly because of the ban placed on public sector employment by the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
The beneficiaries will be engaged for three years and they are expected to earn a monthly stipend of GH¢700 each.
The modules are Feed Ghana, Educate Ghana, Revenue Ghana, Heal Ghana, Enterprise Ghana, Digitise Ghana and Governance Ghana.
