The Ministry of Finance has released 67 million cedis for the first payment of stipends for beneficiaries of the Nation Builders Corps(NABCO).
More than 95,000 trainees who confirmed their acceptance onto the scheme are to benefit from the allowance of 700 cedis each per month. The CEO of NABCO, Dr Ibrahim Anyars, who disclosed this in an interview in Accra yesterday, said the beneficiaries are to be paid through the e-zwich of the Ghana Interbank Payment and Settlement Systems(GHIPSS).
The use of the e-zwich payment mode, he explained, is to help check beneficiaries who were already enrolled onto other government programmes. He said the validation process is still ongoing to get the entire one hundred thousand beneficiaries onto the programme before the end of the year.
