Recruits of the Nation Builders Corps (NaBCo) are threatening to boycott work if the government does not pay them their arrears.

Some recruits are owed between two to seven months’ arrears.

The recruits say they are indebted to MTN Quick Loan Service, Fido Loans and other creditors from whom they took loans to facilitate their transportation to work.

The recruits, in a statement, said they are making necessary arrangements to embark on a demonstration if they are not paid their full arrears spanning November 2018 to April 2019.

The recruits said their “incessant threat to demonstrate isn't basically driven by the love of the action, but to urge management of this flagship initiative to swiftly address the grievances of trainees. Demonstration is not healthy to our socioeconomic environment but we may not avail [ourselves of] any rapid alternative action than to demonstrate since we can no longer continue starving.”

The recruits further “appealed to the management and all stakeholders of this initiative that inasmuch as trainees are demonstrating professionalism and hard work to this nation-building agenda, the payment of our entitlements shouldn't be a herculean task to perform at all. We solemnly demand all arrears paid up to April and absolute normalisation within this month.”

President Nana Akufo-Addo in May 2018 launched the Nation Builders Corps where some 100,000 beneficiaries were commissioned under seven modules which include Feed Ghana, Educate Ghana, Revenue Ghana, Heal Ghana, Enterprise Ghana, Digitise Ghana and Governance Ghana.
