The Minority Caucus in Parliament has criticized the government’s delays in releasing funds for the payment of stipends for Ghanaian students on scholarships abroad, describing the situation as unreasonable.

On Friday, May 24, some Ghanaian students studying in Morocco under the Morocco Scholarship Programme staged a protest at the Ghana Embassy in Rabat.

They expressed frustration over the delays in the release of their stipends.

Speaking to Citi News, the Deputy Ranking Member on the Education Committee of Parliament, Dr. Clement Apaak, urged the government to act immediately to prevent the embarrassment of Ghanaian students demonstrating in other countries to demand their allowances.

“I remember not long ago, we had to contend with Ghanaian students in the UK. Before that, we had to contend with Ghanaian students across the whole of Europe, from Hungary to Holland to Norway to Sweden. When is this going to stop?

“When are we going to have a situation where our students abroad will not have to be reduced to puppets and beggars? When they do not have to come out and cry? Is this too difficult to do as a nation? A new NDC government, led by John Dramani Mahama, would address this issue of unreasonable, outrageous delays in remitting our students abroad.”

Meanwhile, Ghanaian students in Morroco say they have been subjected to hardship amid academic challenges and risk being evacuated from their abode.
