The Executives of Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana, (TTAG) has appealed to the government not to cancel the teacher trainee allowance policy.
This comes after some Ghanaians have suggested to the government to bring an end to the policy to reduce the government’s expenditure.
A Renowned broadcaster, Blessed Godsbrain Smart, popularly known as Captain Smart, has also indicated that the teacher and nursing trainees allowance policy will be cancelled very soon.
According to TTAG, the cancellation of the allowance will have a very detrimental effect on trainee teachers’ education since most of them depend on it for their studies, 3news.com reports.
They added that the government must ensure that their allowance is not cancelled during the negotiations it is having for an International Monetary Fund (IMF) bailout.
Speaking at the 26th delegates conference of TTAG, the President of the Ashanti, Brong and Ahafo regions (ASHBA) branches of TTAG, Adu Kwabena Dennis, said that one of their fears is that the allowance will be cancelled as part of an IMF conditionality.

“We want the government not to consider cancelling the allowance. I say this because when the allowance is cancelled, thousands of students who really depend on the allowance for survival will be side-lined.
“I must confess that it was the allowance that encouraged most of us to attend the colleges and it is the same allowance that has sustained some of us. In fact, some of us depend on the allowance to pay our fees and buy books,” he said.
