The Government spokesperson on governance and security, Palgrave Boakye-Danquah has called on NABCo trainees to remain patient as the government works to address their grievances.
The trainees have threatened to picket again at Jubilee House if the government refuses to address their needs by the close of the week. They gathered at the Independence Square last week to present a petition to the government.
“The NABCo trainees and the NABCo team should exercise a lot more restraint. They gave this petition to government on 17 August 2022,” Boakye-Danquah said.
“There is no need for them to give an ultimatum to the government,” he said. “Number two on their permanent job structure, government has stated that they are rolling them unto YouStart.”
“Once YouStart starts on the 1 September, all NABCo members who have been part of the government NABCo scheme have the opportunity to apply for YouStart to get some money and come together and start businesses to be able to advance whatever entrepreneurial work that they want to do,” Boakye-Danquah told Asaase News.
