A deputy Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Export Promotion Authority (GEPA), Mr Akilu Sayibu, has described as most commendable the restoration of allowances to Trainee nurses.
Speaking to the media in Accra, Mr Sayibu indicated that not only will the restoration of the allowance give the trainees the financial peace of mind to concentrate on their studies but it will attract bright students to the training colleges which will culminate into quality health care delivery to the people ultimately.
Mr Sayibu explained that the introduction of the free SHS and the recent restoration of the trainee nursing students’ allowances go to certify that the NPP, under President Nana Akufo-Addo, is a credible and reliable party that cares so very much about the welfare and future of the students and Ghanaians.
The deputy GEPA CEO stated that the restoration of the allowance was for all students and wonders why some persons were behaving as if the money was for NPP footsoldiers.
According to Mr Sayibu, our hospitals and clinics would be assured of enough nurses to take care of the sick in our health facilities across the country when these trainees complete their studies.
The deputy CEO used the occasion to appeal to the beneficiaries of the allowances not to misuse it but to direct the money into resources for their studies.
He urged the trainees to be willing to accept postings to where their services will be needed after completion of their studies and not necessarily where they may love to work in appreciation to the investment the government was making on them.
