President Akufo-Addo has assured Ghanaians that the progress of recruits of the Nations Builders Corps (NABCO) will be monitored via innovative technology.
He said: “your performance will be monitored through an innovative mobile application, which will be deployed soon”.
The President made this submission at the commissioning ceremony of the first batch of 100,000 NABCO trainees in Accra Wednesday.
He admonished the NABCO trainees to be dutiful and productive in the areas they have been assigned.
“I urge you to demonstrate on a daily basis that you value knowledge on the basis for effective performance and productivity.
“You must show your professional credentials through timeliness and punctuality, and above all live beyond reproach so you could discharge your responsibilities with efficiency so that all at the end of the day can vouch for your integrity”.
He added that the government is investing about GHC3 billion of tax payers’ money into the programme.
“Your monthly stipend of 700 cedis is not free money and you must earn every pesewa of it through hard work and dedication, which I’m confident you will do”, he said.
The NABCO is to operate seven modules including Feed Ghana, Educate Ghana, Revenue Ghana, Heal Ghana, Enterprise Ghana, Digitise Ghana and Governance Ghana.
The beneficiaries will be engaged for three years and they are expected to earn a monthly stipend of GH¢700 each.
The modules are Feed Ghana, Educate Ghana, Revenue Ghana, Heal Ghana, Enterprise Ghana, Digitise Ghana and Governance Ghana.
In all, 100,000 people are to be enrolled onto the programme for the first year.
President Akufo-Addo also revealed that the performance of the recruits will be monitored by an app that would be made available soon.
