The Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana (TTAG) has expressed teacher trainees’ heartfelt gratitude to President Akufo-Addo and his administration for restoring teacher trainees allowance.
Following the cancellation of the teacher trainees allowance by the previous NDC government, its restoration was a major campaign promise made by then-candidate Akufo-Addo, and he duly fulfilled the promise, along with that of nursing trainees, when he took office in 2017.
The teacher trainees praised the Akufo-Addo government for restoring the allowance during a visit to the Jubilee House on Thursday, June 10, 2021, to pay a courtesy call on the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
The restoration of the trainee allowance, according to the teacher trainees, has cushioned many students in teacher training colleges, and the intervention by the government has left a “unforgettable legacy.”
In his address, Dr. Bawumia assured the teacher trainees of the government’s ongoing support and investment in education at all levels to ensure that Ghanaians have easy access to it.
The group gave the Vice President a framed portrait with an inscription expressing their heartfelt gratitude for the government’s restoration of the teacher trainee allowance.
