News reaching TheNewsGh.Com indicates that, one of the Nation Builders Corpse (NABCO) trainees by fake name Fuseni Alhassan has been caught and handed over to the Mamponteng police in the Kwabre East Municipality of the Ashanti region of Ghana on grounds of impersonation for using someone’s identity to work with NABCO.
According to the Municipal NABCO Coordinating Director Mr. Jones Sarfo Anyamesem, after an attempt to change the ezwich number in his name, the stipends ceased.
He said, the same person was always on their NABCO WhatsApp platform castigating the leadership of NABCO for not paying him he was later caught for impersonation.
Further investigations are being done to fish out trainees who after being recruited in other institutions, give out their appointment letters to friends to work in their stead and share the stipends. This he suspects trainees under Heal Ghana and Educate Ghana. Mr. Anyamesem further informed his trainees on their WhatsApp platform that his office is embarking on a personality audit the NABCO trainees in his Municipality.
Persons engaged in similar acts should refrain before facing the law because impersonation is a criminal offence.
“He further thank the hardworking trainees and reminded them to keep to the core values of NABCO (Knowledge, Punctuality and Integrity). The purpose of NABCO is to build a generation of Nation builders that will propel and take over the realms of leadership in the country. He also admonished the trainees to desist from bad acts that put the image of NABCO into disrepute”, Mr. Jones Sarfo Anyamesem said.
Nation Builders Corps also known as NABCO is an initiative introduced by the government of Ghana to provide jobs to unemployed university graduates to solve various social problems in both the private and public sectors and build their skills to promote economic growth in the country.
The focus of the initiative will be solving public service delivery in health, education, agriculture, technology, governance and drive revenue mobilization and collection.
The objectives of the programme are to:
- • Provide temporary employment to unemployed graduates
- • Improve skills and employability for transition from programme to permanent employment
- • Improve public service delivery
- • Improve on government revenue mobilization
- • To provide needed infrastructure to improve access to basic public services
This new scheme – the Nation Builders Corps recognizes the role played by other pathways that currently exist under various government institutions and agencies. In a sense, NABCO ultimately offers a convergence for the employment initiatives landscape. Among the existing Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) with schemes addressed to youth unemployment include: the Ministry for Business Development, Ministry for Local Government and Rural Administration, the National Vocational and Technical Institute (NVTI), Council for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (COTVET), the National Youth Authority (NYA), and the Youth Employment Agency (YEA), and the National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Plan (NEIP) to cite some examples. In particular, the YEA has affected, positively, the lives of many non-tertiary graduates through the innovative modules that have continued to engage lots of young people. In the case of the NABCO, the distinguishing element would be its concentration on addressing the growing phenomenon of unemployment and disillusionment among young people leaving tertiary institutions.
Under the programme, graduates will be trained, equipped with the necessary work tools and deployed around the country to engage in the following programmes:
- • Educate Ghana
- • Heal Ghana
- • Feed Ghana
- • Revenue Ghana
- • Digitize Ghana
- • Civic Ghana
- • Enterprise Ghana
