The actions by most companies to use interns and national service personnel as errand boys and girls is seemingly a growing trend in Ghana.This has gotten the attention of aced broadcast journalist, Nana Aba Anamoah.
According to the broadcaster, the main reason why these interns and NSS personnel are posted to companies is to serve, learn and develop their skills and not act as slaves.
Nana Aba Anamoah intimated that companies should rather equip interns and NSS personnel with the requisite skills and knowledge to set them up for career success.
“The fact that the old laboured during their time to make it to wherever they are now does not mean those coming up need to suffer as they did. I have a challenge with media houses, we do not give enough opportunities to young people. An intern who has been posted is sent on ‘waakye” buying duties until he or she is fed up,” she stated on social media.
