The Vice President and flag bearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has declared that the outstanding nursing trainee allowances for 2024 will be disbursed this Thursday, May 16, 2024, to nursing and teacher trainees across the nation.

These allowances, reinstated by the Akufo-Addo government after being canceled by the previous Mahama administration, have been delayed for several months.

During a significant gathering with the youth in Nalerigu, situated in the North East Region, where numerous nursing and teacher trainees were present, Dr. Bawumia announced this latest development to a chorus of cheers.

“On the nursing training allowance, we have been able to agree on what to do come this Thursday,” Dr. Bawumia said, as the crowd cheered.

“The Minister of Finance has sent me a message which says that on Thursday, the Controller and Accountant General is going to transfer 177 million Ghana Cedis to the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Health will transfer it to the Nursing trainees,” he said. 

“The NPP has demonstrated clearly that it is the party which cares for the youth and have you at heart, through many of our policies, which support you,” he said.

“My opponent in December and his party, the NDC, cancelled the nursing and teacher trainee allowances. But we came in and restored it. We are committed to it and I am very committed to it that is why I have been following up on it,” he added.

The NPP Flagbearer’s announcement sparked excitement during his interaction with the youth, especially among the nurses, who openly celebrated and chanted Dr. Bawumia’s name in appreciation.

After the announcement, Dr. Bawumia reminded the youth and the trainees that the NPP, with its demonstrated commitment to pro-poor policies, cares for nursing and teacher trainees as well as the youth, contrasting this with the approach of Mahama and the NDC.

“So I believe that, in shaa Allah, by next week, all of you should be receiving the  nursing  trainee allowances, and they will be in your accounts.’
