Some beneficiaries of 2010-2012 of the Youth Employment Agency (YEA) in the Nkwanta South Municipality of the Volta Region are aggrieved with the Agency over unpaid exit packages due them after expiration of contract.
The former beneficiaries whose contract with the Agency ended in July 2012, lamented that the YEA has failed to pay their end of service benefit after exiting six years ago.
Petitioning the Nkwanta South Municipal Assembly to demand for their end of service package, the former beneficiaries indicated that following the terms of the programme, an amount of Gh¢5 was being deducted monthly from each individual’s salary for two years as an investment fund.
They bemoaned that both the invested fund and service packages promised by the Agency have not been received.
They are therefore, appealing to the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his New Patriotic Party government to direct Youth Employment Agency to pay the end of service benefits owed them (former beneficiaries) to enable them take care of their family.
Meanwhile, all efforts the reporter made to get the YEA office in Nkwanta for reaction failed as the officials refused to comment on the matter.
