Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr, has described the current government’s National Builders Corps (NaBCO) as an extension of the mandatory one year National Service.
According to him, NaBCO will be discriminating if it fails to include all unemployed graduates.
Speaking to Kaakyire Ofori Ayim on Atinka AM Drive, Kwesi Pratt Jnr, explained that the program will only be devoid of discrimination if the government makes it clear that it is an extension of the national service policy.
He refuted the claim that fresh graduates lack work experience, prompting the establishment of NACOB. According to him, what graduates lack is jobs.
President Akufo-Addo today May 1, 2018, launched the Nation Builders Corps (NaBCO), a programme structured to tackle graduate unemployment in Ghana.
