The Coalition said that from the beginning of the initiative to its conclusion, the Finance Ministry, overseen by Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta, had been callous to the needs of vulnerable NABCO trainees.
They claim that they have seen the Minister's stance as a purposeful strategy to consistently postpone the delivery of cash for the payment of their stripends.
"The Finance Minister who is always seen in his public speeches quoting biblical verses to justify godliness perversely released GH¢25 million for the construction of a mere Temple (National Cathedral). As his partial commitment to the service to God when NABCO Trainees were owed 10 solid months arrears, and were in shock and starvation to death. This attitude of the Finance Minister is not only a disservice to humanity, but a clear unperverted disservice to God, a direct aspersion and distortion of true religious principles.
"The Finance Minister honorable Ken Ofori-Atta in his 2022 mid year budget presentation, ordered the closure of the NABCO program without specifying reasonable timelines for the payment of all arrears as a means of mitigating inter Alia, his abysmal performance of managing the economy", the Coalition said in a statement.
In order for them to be able to celebrate Christmas and make plans for their futures, the Coalition also requested payment from H.E. Nana Addo Dankwah Akuffo-Addo.
