The Majority Leader and Minister of Parliamentary Affairs Hon Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu has defended the introduction of the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) by government to help reduce graduate unemployment in the country, even if temporarily.
According to the Majority Leader it takes an average of about ten years for some graduates to secure permanent job in the country hence the importance of the NABCO.
