It will be recalled that in the run-up to the 2016 general election, Teacher Trainee Allowance was one of the fierce campaign issues in the manifestos of the two leading political parties – NDC and NPP.
In the 2013/2014 academic year, the NDC Government scrapped the payment of monthly allowance to the teacher trainees, a policy that generated disaffection among teacher trainees, and criticized by the then-candidate Akufo-Addo-led New Patriotic Party. Nana Akufo-Addo, vehemently promised to restore the allowance together with that of trainee nurses, if voted into office.
