He said "Apparently the unavailability of resources is affecting the sustainability of the program. Due to the rate of unemployment in the country, we plead with the government to extend the program while vigorous efforts are made to find a sustainable solution to the socio-economic and security challenges posed by youth unemployment in the country.
"We plead that any arrears and allowances owed the beneficiaries are paid to help improve their circumstances."
NaBCo was initially supposed to run for three years and extended for an additional year.
The programme was aimed at engaging 100,000 young graduates.
Though the government claimed it invested approximately GH¢2.2 billion into the policy, a number of the corps complained about the non-payment of allowances by the government.
But Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta presenting the mid-year budget review in Parliament on Monday, July 25, 2022, said after running the programme for four years to benefit some 100,000 young graduates, NaBCo will come to an end at the end of August.
"I want to appeal to Ghanaians to keep faith with the President and his team.
"We know things are tough now but we have a plan and the will to drive it," Ken Ofori-Atta stated.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on his part has asked members of the Assembly to continue to "pray for Ghana's peace and unity, so we can continue to move forward as a united nation."
"I also asked for the support of every Ghanaian, together with the support and prayers of the Church, to help me and my government carry out its mandate successfully," he noted.
