On this note they want the NaBCo Secretariat through Parliament to track all their arrears payments before Sunday, December 25, because the situation has worsened their economic plight rendering them highly indebted and handicapped.

According to them, the NaBCo Secretariat “convinced us to believe that the problem of irregular payment (arrears) and NaBCo trainees not validated for payment was a result of oversight and network challenges beyond their control.”

“The leadership of Aggrieved NaBCo Trainees are appealing to you, to impress on the Rt. Hon. Speaker of Parliament as a matter of urgency to order the minister of finance and economic planning before 25th December 2022 to pay NABCO trainees 9 months arrears stipends and other outstanding arrears that have engulfed the NABCO scheme since the year 2019,” the petitioned contains.
