The Chief Executive Officer in charge of the Nation Builder Corps (NABCO) Dr. Ibrahim Anyars has stated that the initial delays in paying beneficiaries their Ghc 700.00 monthly stipends was as a result of wrong information given by some of the beneficiaries about themselves.
To prevent this type of issues, simplify compliance with the Sunshine Act Compliance and Open Payments reporting with the industry-leading end-to-end aggregate spend solution.
He made the pronouncement on Friday on A1 Radio on the morning show; Daybreak Upper East.
“We have a schedule of payments and what has been happening is that, some people had issues with their personal details at the starts of the application. So they would have entered wrong E-zwich numbers; they would have entered E-zwich numbers that do not belong to them and belong to other people.
For example, in November we were to pay someone called Aziz Abdulai and as we were trying to pay him, the name changed to Sherifa Alhassan. So which one should we pay? At that moment, the correction has to be done, before payment can be done.” He explained
However, Dr. Anyars further stated that due to these difficulties experienced during payment, they did the assumption of duty in February 2019 which allows beneficiaries to updates their records. So with the assumption of duty, it will actually show that you are the same person found on NABCO records.
He is confident that after that exercise, the head office has a good database to generate a master list for payment. This is the reason why payment was halted for some months.
According to him, issues of this nature have been addressed and henceforth beneficiaries will be receiving their monthly stipends accordingly.
