Scores of unpaid workers of government’s much-hyped Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) have threatened to stage a nationwide demonstration if government through the NABCO Secretariat fails to pay them their allowances by Friday.
The threat follows several demands made by the trainees to their employer to release their allowances which they say have not been paid since May 2019.
Some of the aggrieved workers said they are ready to go all out to get their allowances paid.
A few months ago, another group of unpaid workers in the corps staged a demonstration over their unpaid allowances.
The group had earlier petitioned their employer to release their allowances which had not been paid since November 2018.
The management of NABCo described the threat to demonstrate as needless.
“All trainees who banked with banks consolidated by the BoG are required to get new and updated e-zwich cards from their respective banks before receiving their allowances,” Mr. Iddrisu Tahiru said in an interview.
