President Nana Akufo-Addo’s speeches are increasingly becoming a source of frustration among the youth, with a social commentator expressing vehement criticism over the administration’s handling of the National Builders’ Corps (NABCO) retention and payment issues. The commentator suggests that, given the lingering payment concerns, it might be better for the President to refrain from speaking on these matters altogether.
In a scathing statement, the social commentator remarked, “The youth are not only disappointed but angered by the perpetual silence on the payment issues for NABCO personnel. It’s not just about retaining them as Agric Extension Officers; it’s about fulfilling promises and respecting the contributions of the youth to national development.”
The NABCO program, aimed at addressing youth unemployment, has faced challenges, particularly regarding timely payments and retention plans for those involved. The social commentator’s frustration reflects a broader sentiment among the youth who expected more decisive action and clarity on these matters.
“The President’s speeches are losing their impact because they don’t align with the realities faced by the youth. If promises are made, they must be kept, and if issues persist, addressing them head-on is crucial for maintaining trust,” added the commentator.
As the nation grapples with economic challenges and youth unemployment remains a pressing issue, the call for transparent communication and tangible actions is intensifying. The social commentator’s strong stance serves as a reminder of the growing impatience and dissatisfaction among the youth, emphasizing the need for responsive governance and effective policies to address their concerns.
