Beneficiaries of the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) have urged Vice President Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia to expedite the payment of their outstanding arrears for work completed under the program.

In a phone interview on Uniiq Breakfast Drive, Nana Takyi, the National P.R.O of NABCO, highlighted the severe hardships faced by beneficiaries who have been left without permanent employment.

“We are in a state of shock, starvation, and despair,” Takyi stated, emphasizing the dire circumstances of many beneficiaries who were laid off.

According to Takyi, the government has owed most beneficiaries arrears ranging from fifteen to eighteen months since 2021.

He recalled a recent visit by the Vice President to the Volta Region, during which Dr. Bawumia assured that the arrears would be paid, albeit without specifying a timeline.

Takyi stressed that timely payment would enable beneficiaries to stabilize their livelihoods and boost their businesses.

Approximately fifty-five thousand NABCO beneficiaries are awaiting these payments, based on Takyi’s checks with the NABCO headquarters.

The beneficiaries have given the Vice President a one-week ultimatum to address their concerns, warning that failure to respond will result in a massive demonstration.
