Ghana’s Minister for Information Designate, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, has announced that the first-ever Nations’ Builders Corps (NABCO) passing out ceremony will take place tomorrow October 17, 2018.
The minister who was speaking on Star FM as monitored by adomonline.com explained that since the number of beneficiaries was huge, it may be difficult for everybody to make it to the ceremony.
He, however, expects quite a number of youths who are under the programme to attend the ceremony on the said date.
The official ceremony which will take place at the Blacks Star square will be graced by His Excellency Nana AKuffo Addo.
About 100,000 Ghanaian youth are expected to pass out for the programme.
The Nations Builder’s Corps was a job initiative that was launched by the Akufo-Addo administration to provide employment avenues to reduce the unemployment rate in Ghana.
The initiative has received a lot of criticisms, especially from some members of the opposition NDC who believe the programme is a palliative which will not provide beneficiaries with careers.
Over a period of three years, the youth who will be working under The Feed Ghana, Educate Ghana, Revenue Ghana, Heal Ghana, Enterprise Ghana, Digitise Ghana and Governance Ghana modules are expected to earn a monthly income of seven hundred Ghana cedis.
