President John Mahama has said the opposition
New Patriotic Party’s promise to restore
allowances of teacher trainees if they win the
2016 election is mere propaganda.
According to him, the upgrade of teacher
training institutions to tertiary institutions
made it difficult for them to continue enjoying
the benefit of allowances.
“…We raised them to tertiary institution and
brought them to the same level as the
University of Education, Winneba, and the
University of Cape Coast is also training
“So If these ones (tertiary institutions) we don’t
pay teacher trainee allowances; we say go for
student loans, but then if these ones that are
also are tertiary institution and degree
awarding, we say we will pay you teacher
training allowances, then there is no sense of
equity,” Mr. Mahama told the media at the
flagstaff House Tuesday .
The 2016 running mate of the main opposition
NPP flagbearer Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and his
flagbearer Nana Akufo-Addo have promised to
restore the allowance should they win the
November polls.
In the view of Dr. Bawumia, the basis for the
suspension of the allowance by the NDC
government is untenable.
But the President believes such utterances are
unhealthy for policy development in the
“It is not necessary for us to inject politics
into policy making…We must allow policy to
work so they can be reliable and predictable
