The Nations Builders Corps (NABCO) introduced by the president Nana Akuffo and his government could not be a sustainable program since they have intended to pay workers through District Assembly’s common fund, a Governance expert has explained.

Almond Kotei, a Local Governance Expert has disclosed in an interview with Bryt Fm’s Kwahu Dehye on “Ebesi sen” program on Saturday that the introduction of NABCO by the ruling government.

“How can the government sustain this program. It mean Ghanaian’s should not think of any infrastructural development in the country since they have decided to use the money available to pay unemployment benefits and this is the reality “he quizzed.

President Nana Addo Dankwah Akuffo Addo on May 1, 2018 which aims at addressing unemployed graduates in the country but he claims that the said initiative could not be continued since there is not enough fund available for its sustainability.

According to him, the motive behind the District Assembly Common Fund is for infrastructural deficit support therefore if the government is going pay workers through the common fund then it is not in the right direction.

“It is wrong for government to pay NABCO workers through the funds and it will be a problem for the local government. I think the government with this innovation to employ graduates needs to be commended but where paying the workers through the funds is where the problem lies” he reiterated.

He further indicated that most of the assemblies have a lot of arrears at their fold and have initiated projects which are yet to be done.

Almond Kotei stressed that if the district decides to collect a realistic revenue in terms of increasing their internally generated fund, there would be an untold hardship in the country.

“There would be an unnecessary pressure in the country. Even there will be a misunderstanding between graduates who will be employed with differences in salaries. This is a discrimination on employment. There are so many issues surrounding that NABCO program” he stated.
