Beneficiaries of government’s Nation Builders Corps, (NABCO) program have given government a 3-day ultimatum to address their grievances about unpaid allowances from last year or face their wrath.
The trainees have in recent times complained bitterly about the seeming nonchalance of government about their unpaid monies. The coalition is demanding full payment of their arrears which date as far back as November 2018.
Members of the establishment have expressed discontent over the prolonged period taken to pay their arrears and have for that matter threatened to embark on a massive protest as a last resort to getting their grievances addressed
The NABCO beneficiaries in a statement said: “if our appeal hasn't been duly considered, will follow a Press Conference for further declaration of the date for a Massive Demonstration which intuitively is a very sorrowful resort to getting our grievances addressed as hardworking Nation Builders. The Coalition would like to ardently add that, our demands must and be fully addressed. We state emphatically that; in as much as April is about ending, we demand full payment from November to April in any case of extension of payments into the preceding month to meet our earnest quest of regularization”.
The NABCO trainees are also requesting for the necessary structures to be put in place to stipulate and monitor a healthy disciplinary relationship between trainees and coordinators as well as a probe into all reported cases of infractions at the district level
“The Coalition reaffirms the unity among all Trainees and call for collaboration of all divergent segments and our Precious Coordinators to drum their support over the Coalition. We also request for a probe into all reported cases of infractions on Trainees at the district level”.

All Trainees should kindly note that the positive quest of the Coalition dovetails into the apparent sentiments and collective welfare of all Trainees, therefore Trainees should debunk any odd allegation on tribal or political manipulations crassly distorted by few segments.
