NABCO is a success – CEO
The CEO of the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO), Dr Ibrahim Anyars has said all seven modules of the policy have been successful thus far and are doing very well.
Launched on May 1, 2018, NABCO was designed to meet the pressing needs of the nation, while providing jobs for the teeming youth who have received tertiary education but are struggling to find jobs partly because of the ban placed on public sector employment by the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
Over 100.000 graduates have been recruited on the policy.
Speaking on Morning Starr on Monday, Dr. Anyars told host Francis Abban that owing to the success rate being recorded, he has “no doubt in mind that the scheme will justify its existence.”
Touching on the challenges the policy faced regarding payment of salaries of beneficiaries, Dr. Anyars assured that his office has no interest in delaying salaries and that the delay was mostly as a result of some inefficiencies in the payment data supplied by beneficiaries.
“We have no interest in delaying the salaries of NaBCo beneficiaries. Some have delays in salary because they’ve not followed the necessary instructions. I want to assure all who have their data intact that they’ll have their January salaries paid,” he said.
He also stated that recruits will soon be given new contracts specifying when they are due to exit the program. “The new one will tell them exactly when they would be exiting the program after being on it for a while,” he stated.
