Speaking to thepressradio.comafter the NABCO recruits ceremony on Wednesday, 17 October 2018, one of the beneficiaries stated that “I am happy because it is very pathetic that as a graduate I will go to my parents for money before I can survive because there is no job so if by God’s grace the Nana Addo led NPP government has implemented this initiative we have to give thanks to God and the government for their concerns”
“The monthly stipend of GH¢700 is encouraging, though it is not a permanent job but is very good initiative it will help us in so many things, one thing that am grateful is that the NABCO will give us additional training to acquire more skills and am optimistic we would be given permanent job after the three years” another beneficiary noted.
According to them, they have confident in the NPP government that the numerous initiatives such as the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO), planting for food and jobs and one district one factory will create jobs for the youth to transform the country.
