Trainee-teachers commend Akufo-Addo for allowance restoration

The Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana (TTAG) has commended President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his government for restoring teacher-trainee allowance.


Following the cancellation of teacher-trainee allowance by the erstwhile NDC government, its restoration was a major campaign promise by then candidate Nana Akufo-Addo, and he duly fulfilled the promise to restore the allowance, alongside that of trainee-nurses, when he assumed office in 2017.


The teacher-trainees gave this commendation last week when they paid a courtesy call on Vice- President Mahamudu Bawumia at the Jubilee House.


Unforgettable legacy


The teacher-trainees said the restoration of the trainee allowance had cushioned many students in colleges of education, and described the intervention by the government as “an unforgettable legacy.”

Addressing them, Dr   Bawumia assured the teacher-trainees of government’s continuous support and investment in education at all levels to ensure easy access by Ghanaians.


The group presented a framed portrait of the Vice-President to him with an inscription of their “unforgettable appreciation” of government’s restoration of teacher-trainee allowance.
