President Akufo-Addo has urged NABCO module implementing agencies to give priority to beneficiaries when there is an opportunity for permanent jobs.

President Akufo Addo appealed to NABCO module implementation partners to recognize and appreciate NABCO trainees.

Speaking at the first anniversary since the scheme was instituted, today October 17, 2019, President Akufo-Addo urged the NABCO trainees to continue to develop themselves and take the benefits the scheme provides.

''I urge our NABCO trainees to continue to cease the moment and opportunities offered by the scheme to develop themselves. As a trainee, the NABCO story must be one of continual growth. It is our hope that you transition smoothly to your desired career as a result of the value addition derived from the scheme''.

''I commend the NABCO module implementation partners for their partnership to the scheme and I appeal to them to recognize and reward the sacrifices made by the trainees . They should be first to be considered when an opportunity of permanent employment comes up''.

President Akufo Addo was grateful for the sacrifice the trainees have offered in serving the nation.

The occasion was also used to launch the NABCO Skills and Talent Academy, (NSTA Pathway)  to mark the first anniversary of the programme.

The NSTA will prepare NABCO trainees, towards exiting to their chosen careers. This comes on the heels of claims that eleven thousand trainees have gained permanent employment.
