The former Northern Regional Coordinator for the government’s flagship Nation Builders Corps (NABCo), who is now the deputy Minister, Savannah Region, Hon Samuel Tika has urged trainees of the programme to vote massively for the Chief Executive Officer, Dr Anyars Ibrahim to become the Member of Parliament for the Tamale Central Constituency in 2021 and ensure President Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo Addo gets another four more years to continue his monumental policies and programmes to transform the country’s economy.
Speaking to beneficiaries of the Nation Builders Corps on Wednesday for a day’s capacity building workshop on career development in the Tamale metropolis, Mr. Tika said the sustenance of the program depends on the future of the New Patriotic Party in government.
He emphasized that: “The NPP cannot remain in power without our CEO, Dr Anyars Ibrahim going to parliament, so am begging you that do all as you can, particular those of you within the Tamale Central Constituency and even all those around the Tamale areas to give him your maximum support to become the Member of Parliament for Tamale Central Constituency.”
The deputy Minister argued that 2020 is a year of determination and time to pay back and giving appreciation where it is due. He stated: “I am not going say before the establishment of NABCo all of you were sitting down in the house but before NABCo you were sitting in the house just praying that one day you will pick your bag and say let me go to work and come, now that is what you are doing and I am telling that if you want this to continue and graduate to get permanent employment which is the vision of NABCo, we need to do something very serious and that seriousness is to ensure that the NPP is retained in power.”
The NPP government in 2017 introduced NABCo to tackle the huge graduate unemployment situation in the country. Thousands of Ghanaian university graduates were left to their faith under the erstwhile John Mahama led NDC administration because of an embargo on employment in the country by the International Monetary Fund when former President Mahama run to the Britain wood institution for policy credibility.
However, through the Nation Builders Corps program, President Nana Akufo Addo employed one hundred thousand graduates across the country last year.
