Govt to release GH¢177m to clear arrears – Nursing trainee allowance – Bawumia

Vice President Dr Mahamadu Bawumia has announced the release of some GH¢177 million to the Health Ministry to pay allowances owed to nursing trainees across the country.

The nursing trainee allowance, which has been in arrears for months, was reintroduced by the Akufo-Addo administration after it was abolished.

Speaking at a meeting with nurses and midwives in Accra, Dr Mahamadu Bawumia said the money would be paid on Thursday.

“This Thursday, the Controller is transferring GH¢177 million to the Ministry of Health to pay the nursing training allowances. So I have also alerted Dr. Okoe-Boye to be on standby when the money hits the Ministry of Health account, they should move it quickly to the accounts of the nursing trainees so that they will have their alawa. It will drop.”
