“Under the NPP, teacher trainee allowances will be fully restored….

That was how the NPP in opposition captured the restoration of the teacher trainee allowance in its 2016 manifesto and true to the party’s commitment the allowance was restored in 2017.

Each trainee takes GH¢400 as a monthly allowance from which GH¢196 is used to pay for trainees’ utilities.

But information available to this portal indicates that the allowance has been in arrears for almost four months now, a situation that has bestowed untold hardship on students in the various Colleges of Education.
