Fulfill your promises to trainee teachers and nurses – Mahama to government

ormer President John Dramani Mahama has called on the Akufo-Addo government to fulfill its
promises to teacher trainees and nursing students by paying the allowances owed them.

Mr Mahama made the call when he addressed delegates of the National Democratic Congress
(NDC) in Ada on Friday to wrap up his five-day campaign tour of the Greater Accra Region.

He said prior to the 2016 general elections, the NDC administration explained to the students
that it was better to shift them onto the students’ loan scheme in order to use the extra money
to build more schools and hospitals to enable government provide them with sustainable jobs.
But then opposition NPP criticised the decision and promised to pay the teacher trainees and
nursing students allowances when elected.

“By God’s grace you have come, now pay the trainees. You promised and so you must fulfill it.
Promises are meant to be fulfilled and so the teacher trainee allowances, the nursing training
allowances, you promised that you will pay, so go ahead and pay”, he said.

Former President Mahama also bemoaned the congestion in many Senior High Schools (SHS) as
a result of the poor implementation of the Free Senior High School programme, citing overcrowding
in dormitories and its attendant bed bugs problems in particular.

He has therefore appealed to the government to fumigate dormitories in order to bring relief to
the suffering students.

On the double track system, Mr Mahama asked “what will parents be doing with their children
at home on vacation for 41 days of vacation”? He added that parents are likely to pay more for
extra tuition for their children when they go on vacation from schools next week.
