Information Minister-designate, Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah, has challenged the Opposition to be constructive in their critique of government and not prophesy that national programs fail.

Oppong Nkrumah was responding to predictions by NDC MP for Wa Central Rashid Pelpuo that the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) program will be hit with difficulties leading to collapse.

President Akufo-Addo on Wednesday commissioned the passing out ceremony for 100,000 beneficiaries under NABCO modules which includes Feed Ghana, Educate Ghana, Revenue Ghana, Heal Ghana, Enterprise Ghana, Digitise Ghana and Governance Ghana.

Contributing to a news review discussion program on Accra based Citi TV on thursday, the NDC Wa Central MP criticised the Akufo-Addo administration and described NABCO as a “dishonest approach to job creation”.

Government has failed in creating jobs. NABCO is a duplication of the already existent YEA program. It will soon be hit with difficulties and will fail,” Rashid Pelpuo said.

But in a sharp rebuttal the Information Minister Designate Kojo Oppong Nkrumah challenged the Minority MP and his colleagues to focus on the wellbeing of Ghanaians and not their selfish interest.

“We expect the minority to encourage us and provide constructive criticism in implementing our major campaign promises and interventions but not wish our downfall” he said.

Oppong Nkrumah said the concept of NABCO was unique because of its attributes which included graduate skills training.

He said government was dealing with the unemployment menace created by the previous NDC administration while complimenting the efforts of the Private Sector with stimulus packages to create more jobs.
