Director of Legal Affairs for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Abraham Amaliba has accused the government of deception regarding the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) programme.
He said the trainees were made to believe that they would be given permanent jobs after enrolling in the programme but that has not been the case.
This is a mark of deception, he said on the New Day show with Johnnie Hughes on TV3 Friday, September 2.
Mr Amaliba asked the government to pay the arrears and also apologize to the trainees for the delay in paying them.
“Pay them for the eleven months arrears and an the end of the day apologise to them,” he said.
A Deputy Communications Officer of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) Kamal Deem Abdullai also said NABCO has the right to demand what is due them as far as their arrears are concerned.
In his view, even if they are even owed one month, they have the right to demand for the payment.
“I am putting myself in the shoes and I empathize with them, they have the right to demand that the government pays them and government must do the needful,” he also said on the New Day show
