Cape Coast, Oct. 18,
GNA – Mr Solomon Ebo Appiah, the Central Regional Coordinator of the Nation
Builders Corps (NABCO), has called on all beneficiaries to be committed and
productive at work to justify the investment made in them.
He said they must
eschew all forms of negative work attitudes, exhibit their intellectual skills
and remain dedicated and committed to their mandated duties.
Mr Appiah was
speaking at the one year anniversary of NABCO at a gathering of beneficiaries
in the Region in Cape Coast.
He said the
initiative was laudable and would help beneficiaries to justify their
competences for employment in the future.
NABCO was introduced
by government to solve the issue of graduate unemployment and social problems
in the country, hence the need for them to work assiduously to improve on
productivity to justify their relevance.
Palmer Buckle, the Cape Coast Metropolitan Archbishop, urged the beneficiaries
to adopt the virtues of punctuality and commitment to duty at all times.
He praised all
hardworking youth who as future leaders have the power to transform the nation
and urged them to make the difference wherever they found themselves.
The Archbishop urged
them to be God fearing and flee from all ungodly acts that would eventually
ruin their lives.
Nyarkoh Sampson, Dean of Faculty of Educational Foundation University of Cape
Coast (UCC), who was the guest speaker, appealed to the government to invest
more in the youth to make them productive.
Speaking on the
theme: “Investing in Youth, Securing our future through work opportunities
and nation Building”, he called on the coordinators of NABCO to strengthen
monitoring and supervision of the trainees with the laydown procedures and
effectively punish recalcitrant ones to serves as a deterrent to others.
Mr Kwamena Duncan,
Central Regional Minister, commended the trainees for their patience and
understanding amidst the challenges faced throughout the contract and
encouraged them to support government for the good initiative aimed at tackling
the canker of youth unemployment in the country.
