“For us, we restored the allowance. For other people, they cancelled it. And we are going to keep working hard. And I am going to keep my eyes on your ‘alawa’ so that we can make sure that it is regular and comes. You will be assured of that. I am going to keep my eye on it. We are going to change this country,” he said.

The Vice President announced that the Ministry of Finance has approved a disbursement of one hundred and seventy-seven million Ghana cedis (GH¢177 million) to settle the outstanding debt owed to trainee nurses across Ghana.

This measure aims to clear all arrears by the end of the week.

“This Thursday, the Controller is transferring GH¢177 million to the Ministry of Health to pay the nurses trainee allowances.

“So I have also alerted Dr Okoe-Boye to be on standby. When the money hits the Ministry of Health account, they should move it quickly to the accounts of the nurses trainees so that they will have their ‘alawa’. It will drop,” he assured.
