The Vice President and NPP flagbearer, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has declared that pending nursing trainee allowances for 2024 will soon be disbursed to nursing and teacher trainees nationwide.

These allowances, initially revoked by the previous Mahama administration but reinstated by the Akufo-Addo government, have faced delays for several months.

Addressing a sizable gathering of youth, including nursing and teacher trainees, in Nalerigu, North East Region, Dr. Bawumia shared the news to resounding applause.

“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.

“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.’

Dr. Bawumia’s revelation electrified the audience, particularly the nursing trainees, who openly expressed their jubilation, echoing his name in appreciation.

Following this announcement, Dr. Bawumia underscored the NPP’s commitment to supporting nursing and teacher trainees, contrasting it with the cancellation of these allowances by the NDC under Mahama’s leadership.

“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.
