The Obuasi office of the Nations Builders Corps (NABCO) has lined up a number of activities to celebrate its one-year anniversary.
The NABCO program which is one of the flagship programs of the New Patriotic Party’s Government was launched on 1st May 2018 by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo.
At the launch of the one-year anniversary in Obuasi, the Municipal Coordinator of NABCO, Mr. Kwaku Adjei said the office will be donating white marker boards to schools in the Municipality, organize a clean-up exercise at the main Obuasi Central Market, organize a community business empowerment program as well as a dinner and awards ceremony to climax the celebrations.
speaking on behalf of the Municipal Chief Executive for Obuasi, Madam Margaret Owusu Mensah called for further commitment on the part of the personnel to duty.
“It is only through hard work and commitment that could influence your permanent stay in your offices”.
While citing her personal experience as an example, Madam Owusu Mensah again advised personnel of NABCO to guard against indiscipline and endeavor to make the best out of the opportunity given them through the program.
Various speakers including the Manager of the Obuasi office of the Ghana Revenue Authority, Mr. Charles Preprah praised the government for the introduction of the NABCO program.
He again commended those in the Revenue Ghana module posted to his office for their hard work especially when it comes to Personal or Self Employed Income Tax.
Using statistics to back his claim, Mr. Preprah said before the introduction of NABCO in 2018, the office generated GHc1,206,969. 87 in revenue from Personal Income Tax but through the efforts of personnel from NABCO, they have been able to collect GHc1,285,151,517.94 from January to September 2019 representing 9.4% increase.
He appealed to the personnel to work assiduously wherever they find themselves to enable government to sustain the policy.
Mr. Augustine Antwi, the Municipal Director of Agric and Madam Grace Oppong, the Human Resource Director of GES both gave situational reports of the activities of the NABCO personnel in the Feed Ghana and Revenue Ghana modules respectively.
