Young Ghanaians who are studying to become teachers and nurses are complaining about the delay in payment of their student allowances.

The allowances were once cancelled by former President John Mahama but in 2016 President Akufo-Addo campaigned and promised to restore them when he comes into office.

He did restore it when he came into office, however, the students have been complaining recently that they have not been paid the allowances owed them.

For the past couple of months, they have complained that they have not received their allowances.

They took to social media to air their concerns and gain the attention of the government.

In April this year, the Ghana Nurses and Midwife Trainees’ Association threatened to embark on a nationwide demonstration if the government fails to pay eight months of allowance arrears allegedly owed its members.

The government denied that it owed 8 months of allowance arrears but said it was processing three months worth of arrears.
