The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, says the 100,000 young men and women recruited under the Nation Builders Corp (NABCO) initiative have made positive contributions to the growth and development of the country, a year after its inception.
According to President Akufo-Addo, there is hardly any sphere of our national life in which the contribution of our young NABCO trainees is not being felt – education, agriculture, health, local government, the digitization process, revenue mobilization, and private sector activity.
He stressed that they are utilizing our existing intellectual infrastructure to resolve domestic challenges, in the delivery of effective public services.”
President Akufo-Addo made this known on Thursday, 17th October 2019, when he spoke at the 1st Anniversary of the launch of the NABCO program at the National Theatre, Accra.
Citing examples of the areas in which NABCO trainees have been of tremendous assistance; President Akufo-Addo noted that, 12,750 NABCO trainees are working on the National Digital Property Addressing System, which will lead to the tagging of homes across the country with a plate bearing the house number, street name, and a digital address.
Again, in the fight against ‘galamsey’, over 200 NABCO trainees work with the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining, with trainees being given skills in operating the surveillance drones procured, and currently working on acquiring their licenses to become certified drone pilots.
Our flagship policy for the renewal of Ghanaian agriculture dubbed the Program for Planting for Food and Jobs, has seen NABCO trainees work in areas such as extension services, seed and fertilizer distribution, and in mechanization.
