NABCO Trainees are paid after validations and confirmations from MIPS, District Offices and user agencies are done to be sure they are still on the program and not exited.
Some Trainees leave for further studies, others leave for permanent employment, some leave to venture into entrepreneurship whiles others leave for other reasons.
So unlike public sector workers, payment can not be made immediately the month ends unless this validation and verification processes are finished so as not to pay those who have exited thereby wasting the taxpayers money.
Secondly, it’s a new policy that came to help graduates with exposure to the work environment and also for them to gain experience so that when they apply for permanent jobs lack of experience will not be used to deny them the opportunities.
It is also a work and learn policy that’s why a lot of workshops and capacity building programs are organized to equip trainees for the world of opportunities.
Trainees should kindly restrain from abusive comments to management of the scheme. Nobody will deliberately hold monies belonging to them. It is just to avoid wasting monies belong to us all.
Measures are being put in place to fast track the processes so that stipends can be paid as early as possible. Hundred thousand is not a small number!
Meanwhile, validations for December are done and allowance will be paid very soon. Hopefully before we start a new week.
