The General Secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has assured all aggrieved beneficiaries of the Nation Builders’ Corps (NABCo) programme, including those who are members of the party, who have genuinely worked but have not been paid that they will be settled in due time.
According to Mr Boadu, the party is following up with Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta to ensure that all the beneficiaries are paid.
But for the intervention of the party, Mr Boadu said a lot of the beneficiaries would have ended up on the streets jobless when their contracts ended in October this year.
Mr Boadu said such interventions form part of the party’s internal feedback role to bridge the gap between the grassroots and the government.
Mr Boadu made the comment when he spoke to Iddrisu Awudu on Accra100.5FM’s morning show on Thursday, 16 December 2021 about a threat by some members of the party to demonstrate over the weekend during the party’s National Delegates Conference in Kumasi for having been neglected.
For instance, he said there once was a situation where School Feeding Programme Coordinators in the Tamale metropolis of the Northern Region claimed they had not been paid and the party forwarded that complaint to Cabinet where the matter was addressed at the presidential level.
He noted that the party always follows up on some of these concerns whenever they are raised by supporters of the party across the country.
“It is not as if party leaders are sitting aloof without doing anything about some of this feedback when they come up”, he noted
