President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, last year launched the Nation Builders’ Corps (NABCO), which is expected to employ 100,000 young graduates to assist in the public sector service delivery needs of Ghana.
NABCO’s central focus is to create employment avenues and opportunities for young graduates from accredited tertiary institutions and enhance the dignity and self-esteem of the country’s graduates, as well as present them with added benefits of efficiency and effectiveness in the delivery of some essential public services.
Explaining the objective of establishing NABCO, President Akufo-Addo said the dreary story of youth unemployment had been a scar on the nation’s history, which was further aggravated in recent times by the moratorium placed on public sector employment by the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
President Akufo-Addo said in view of this predicament and mishap, the 2018 budget statement provided an indication of a new employment scheme which would tackle the issue of the growing number of unemployment.
