Nursing Trainee Allowances To Be Paid Next Week – Dr. Bawumia Promises

Outstanding nursing trainee allowances for 2024 will be issued this Thursday, May 16, 2024, according to Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the vice president and presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP). These payments would be sent to trainee nurses and instructors across the nation.

The last few months have seen a standstill for the allowances that the Akufo-Addo administration reinstated for teacher and nurse trainees after the previous Mahama administration had cancelled them.

Nonetheless, Dr. Bawumia broke the good news to a thunderous round of applause from the assembled trainee nurses and teachers during a youth engagement in Nalerigu, North East Region.

Nursing Trainee Allowances To Be Paid Next Week – Dr. Bawumia Promises

“On the nursing training allowance, we have been able to agree on what to do come this Thursday…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”, Dr. Bawumia promised.

He added; “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.”

The NPP flagbearer’s statement enthralled the young people, with the nurses in particular gleefully celebrating and screaming Dr. Bawumia’s name in thanks.

On many campuses, the Vice President’s most recent announcement will be met with great enthusiasm because the nursing training allowance is a crucial stipend for trainees.

Dr. Bawumia also reminded the youth and trainees of the care and commitment of the government to addressing the challenges confronting the trainees, stressing “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 further cautioned them against the NDC flagbearer, former President John Mahama saying “my opponent (Mahama) in December and his party, the NDC, cancelled the nursing and teacher trainee allowances but we came in and restored it” but “we (NPP) are committed to it and I (Bawumia) am very committed to it that is why I have been following up on it”.
