We don’t owe you 8 months allowances


The Ministry of Health has rejected allegations that the government owes members of the Trainees and Nurses-Midwives Syndicate an eight-month allowance.

The Ghana Trainee Nurses and Midwives Association has threatened to start a nationwide demonstration if the government fails to pay eight months in arrears owed to its members.

However, in a press release signed by its main director, Kwabena Bawadu Oku Avari, the ministry said the group’s claims were false.

“The Ministry of Health would like to reassure the public that it does not owe any student for eight months as mentioned in the GNMTA press release, and the Ministry has not stopped paying trainee allowances to students of government health training institutions.

However, the ministry acknowledged that it owed about three months in arrears but said it was on track to pay the same.

In the meantime, the ministry has prepared a batch of January, February and March 2021 for continuing students, which was approved by the Ministry of Finance for the Comptroller and Accountant General to release the funds, she said.
