The call by the concerned NABCO personnel working temporarily as interns in the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) follows a memorandum released by the Human Resource Department of GRA dated November 13, 2020, and signed by the Acting Head Human Resource.
According to the memo sighted by bricyboateng, management had concerted to plans to make NABCO personnel serving under GRA permanent. Thus, the memo sought to request Area Managers to arrange for halls that can comfortably accommodate interns in their offices and appoint supervisors who will supervise the aptitude test.
Additionally, Area managers were to assist interns who do not have smartphones or laptops for the smooth implementation of the process.
Fast-forward, it has been almost a year that these interns sat for the aptitude test however, those who passed have since not been recruited into GRA as permanent staff.
In reaction to the development, some NABCO personnel have exhibited their sentiments on social media, with many posting placards with the hashtag — #Fix The Country. On some placards, the following were inscribed:
“Fix The Country Now! Mr. Commissioner — General, let people pass through the right channels of recruitment and stop the protocol. NabCO personnel have 'worked' hard and deserve to be employed. Fix NabCO GRA personnel 'permanently' Now!”
Another one also reads :
“Fix The Country now. Mr. President, GRA NABCO personnel were asked to go for interview just for your political gains and votes. Fix GRA NABCO personnel now. ”
The Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) programme is a government initiative to address graduate unemployment to solve social problems. The focus of the initiative will be solving public service delivery in health, education, agriculture, technology, governance and drive revenue mobilization and collection.
