Speaking in an interview in Nevada, USA, in an audio shared by Nsempii TV, Kennedy Agyapong emphasized that the monies used to pay these trainees for doing no job could have been used to build factories to employ a lot of people to work.

“The youth must take their destiny into their own hands, (but) then again, what policy did we implement (to help with unemployment)? I think that the mistake the NPP made was the introduction of the NABCO.”

“NABCO trainees were posted to government offices and ministries where they were doing nothing and being paid GH¢700 every month”.

“The money the government used (for NABCO) could have been used to establish industries that could have provided 20,000 permanent employment out of the 100,000 trainees to reduce the number of unemployed youth,” he said in Twi.
