The trainees who are owed about nine months’ allowances despite the end of their programme have said Mr Ofori-Atta has been insensitive.
The coalition says they cannot fathom how a minister who continuously quotes scriptures will watch them starve to death after all their services to the country.
“The Finance Minister who is always seen in his public speeches quoting biblical verses to justify godliness perversely released GH¢25 million for the construction of a mere temple (National Cathedral).
“As his partial commitment to the service to God when NABCO Trainees were owed 10 solid months arrears and were in shock and starvation to death. This attitude of the Finance Minister is not only a disservice to humanity but a clear unperverted disservice to God, a direct person and distortion of true religious principles,” the aggrieved trainees said in a statement.
