The desire by most companies to convert interns and national service personnels into errand boys and girls is rapidly growing in Ghana. This is a situation Nana Aba Anamoah disapproves of.
Speaking in an exclusive interview which has gone viral, Nana Aba Anamoah said she has observed the trend where interns and NSS personnels are sent on long errands to buy “waakye” and delegate other roles which do not have a direct link to what they have been posted to these companies to do.
Nana Aba Anamoah also said that companies should rather equip interns and NSS personnels with requisite skills and knowledge to set them up for career success.
“The fact that the old labored during their time to make it to wherever they now do not mean those coming up need to suffer as they did. I have a challenge with media houses, we do not give enough opportunities to young people. An intern who has been posted is sent on ‘waakye” buying duties until he or she is fed up,” she stated.
