The National President of the NABCO trainees Association of Ghana (NABTAG), Dennis Opoku Katakyie has confirmed that Government has paid one out 10 months arrears owed them.
The statement which was signed by the president reminded the general public of the arrears, stating the amount owed them span between December 2021 to August 2022.
“NABCO trainees are hereby informed that stipends payment for November 2021, as one month’s settlement of the ten months arrears, has been processed. In actuality, nine months, counting from December 2021 through to August 2022, are still outstanding.”
Showing their appreciation even though the amount being woefully inadequate, the group said they are grateful to the government for taking a step “in ameliorating the unfortunate situation in which we find ourselves.”
The group further asked the government, particularly the Ministry of Finance, to “affix trainees’ outstanding arrears into its subsequent allocations to enable the Secretariat to effect payment for the remaining months.”
NABTAG warned that it will employ every plausible approach to ensure that trainees are fully paid their stipends for the remaining months.
“If after a considerable period of time, arrears for the remaining months are not fully paid, the leadership will recruit another draconian measure to forcibly ensure that we are paid. We have done it before, so we can do it again.”
