Over 1000 aggrieved former beneficiaries under the Youth Employment Authority (YEA) have threatened to stage series of demonstrations to force government to pay their over year unpaid salaries.
In March 2019, a section of the beneficiaries received the shock of our lives when a circulating social media communiqué, stated the termination of their engagement because they were said to have their detailed also captured details of Nation Builders Corps (NABCo) database
Frederick Antwi, Coordinator of the aggrieved former beneficially under the Youth Employment Authority (YEA) speaking to Pure Fm’s Osei Kwadwo, said the Forestry Commission did not deem it to fit to serve the beneficiaries letters of disengagement.
According to him, the beneficiaries went to their various workplaces as usual where they were summarily dismissed without being given a fair hearing.
“To add insults to our already bleeding wounds, the Commission failed to pay our allowances, which were long overdue from October 2018 to March 2019 when this unfortunate news got to us. Information we gathered from enquiries made on our plight revealed that, the commission alleged that we wanted to take undue advantage of the two government subventions by taking double allowances. This commission wants to rob us of our hard-earned money” he said.
He added “we want the commission with immediate effect release all that they owe us or prepare to face the wrath of over one thousand hungry and angry Ghanaian youth”.
He added that if possible, the commission should reinstate those who were unfairly disengaged after the Forestry Commission in particular made them finalize their termination of appointment with NABCo by taking confirmatory letter of resignation from the district NABCo Coordinators.
