The Ministry of Education has refuted claims that it has canceled allowances of teacher and nurse trainees.
In a statement dated July 14, 2023, and endorsed by the Public Relations Officer, Kwasi Kwarteng, the ministry affirmed that it has no plans to terminate the said allowances.
The statement also assures the two entities of the government’s commitment to ensuring that the necessary financial assistance is made to them.
“The statement attributed to the Minister for Education, Hon. Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum regarding the cancellation of allowances for teachers and nursing students is categorically false and unfounded. The Ministry of Education denies any such claims or intentions to terminate these allowances.
“We understand the importance of supporting and prioritizing the training of teachers, and the government remains committed to providing necessary financial assistance in these areas,” the statement said.
The ministry has therefore advised the public to verify from official sources, information on matters regarding education and health.
