The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has released beneficiaries of the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) in the Upper West Region.

This was disclosed in a letter addressed to the Regional Director of NABCO in the region.

The letter dated Monday, 1 November 2021, signed by the Medical Director of the Upper West Regional Hospital, Robert Ameniya said: “Following your contractual agreement to end the services of NABCO beneficiaries in the various institutions on 31 October 2021, we are by this letter releasing all NABCO beneficiaries to you with effect from 1 November 2021 for further action. “

It further stated that: “By this letter NABCO beneficiaries posted to this hospital are informed to stay off until further notice.”

It also thanked the NABCO beneficiaries for their support, adding that: “We will reach out to you if we need your services.”

The NABCO initiative, launched by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in 2018, was to employ some 100,000 unemployed graduates.

Beneficiaries were paid GHS700 and worked for a three-year period.

Modules under the initiative included Educate Ghana, Feed Ghana, Revenue Ghana, Heal Ghana, Digitise Ghana Enterprise Ghana and Governance Ghana.

President Akufo-Addo speaking on Kumasi-based Ash FM in a recent tour of the Ashanti Region noted that the initiative will continue to recruit more jobless graduates.  

“We are looking at recruiting many more into the programme in the coming days,” the President posited.
