Graduates engaged under the Nations Builders Corp (NaBCo) have been urged to help fight corruption in public institutions.
The future of the country belongs to the youth, hence the need for them to remain anti-corruption advocates, and help stem the canker in government institutions.
Seth Cudjoe, the Sunyani Municipal Coordinator of NaBCo, made the call at a training workshop for the third batch of successful applicants of the programme in Sunyani.
He advised them to be bold, expose, report corrupt public officials they would be working under and desist from absenteeism, lateness to work, alcoholism, drug abuse and work diligently to improve production in their workplace.
“The country remains under-developed because corruption is rife, I entreat you to serve as agents of change and guard against corrupt practices, you should be bold enough to expose corrupt officials.
“We must be as positive thinkers, result oriented employees whose goals are to build a better Ghana for our generation and generations to come, the idea behind NaBCo is not only to end graduate unemployment, engage and pay them allowances but to also churn out quality labour force that is required to facilitate accelerated national development.
“NaBCo had come to stay, it is the vision of the programme to become distinctive and reliable public institution that will push forward development in a holistic manner and be disciplined to serve as role models for subsequent NaBCo graduates.
“We will not tolerate any form of indiscipline, absenteeism and bad conduct and warn any appointed graduates who demonstrate any unruly behaviour will have their contract terminated,” Mr Cudjoe stressed.
Douglas Adjei, a NaBCo research training officer, admonished the graduates to exhibit patriotism, nationalism and work hard towards national progress and cohesion. –GNA
