The information reaching the News Desk of Coleman Publications reveals the Government has allocated GH¢ 241,913,000 for teacher trainees’ allowance for the 2022/2023 academic year.
This help rubs out the perception many are having about the government scrapping the allowances in the next academic year.
However, Some are of the view the government is keeping to the allowance pledge just to score a ‘political point’. They believe he is battling with the payment of the Gh¢200.00 monthly stipend to the trainees, hence the need to abolish it.
Some also believe trainees’ allowances have outlived their usefulness and the government should scrap them.
