Cancellation Of Teacher Trainee ‘Allawa’ Was A Presidential Decision Not Ministerial; Jane Naana Innocent : NDC

Published

on

The national Democratic Congress has stated emphatically that its flagbearer’s running mate Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang did not cancel the teacher training allowance during her reign as Education Minister, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) as purported by the governing New Patriotic Party.

Speaking at a press conference in Accra on Wednesday, 8 July 2020, National Communications Officer of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi said the claim NPP that Prof Opoku-Agyemang “canceled teacher trainee allowance is not true, saying the decision was a cabinet decision and not a ministerial decision”.

The former University of Cape Coast vice Chancellor has been accused especially by the NPP and some groups of leading the erstwhile Mahama administration’s decision to cancel the teacher-trainee allowance and will do the same if she becomes the Vice President of the country if John Mahama wins the December elections this year.

But reacting to these accusations against Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang, Mr Gyamfi said NDC flagbearer John Mahama takes full responsibility for canceling the allowance, therefore, the NPP propaganda against Prof Opoku-Agyemang will not stand.

“The sad reality today is that instead of the full restoration of the allowance as was promised by President Akufo-Addo and the NPP, teacher trainees are being served with a partial restoration of the allowances which is being paid in a rather very erratic manner and for only eight months instead of 12 months as was the case before the convention,” said Mr Gyamfi.

He continued: “In fact, our checks this morning shows that the Akufo-Addo government hasn’t paid teacher trainees since February 2020 and so the allowances they claim to have restored is currently in arrears for over four months.

“To add insult to injury, the Akufo-Addo government has increased the school fees of teacher trainees and introduced feeding fees which used to be free under the Mahama government. Worse of it all is the abolishment of the automatic employment of teachers and the introduction of a needless licensure exam…”

Founder and Head Pastor of Prophetic Hill Chapel, Prophet Nigel Gaisie has said the ruling New Patriotic Party-NPP sometime ago offered him an amount of GH¢1.6million but he rejected.

Speaking in an interview with Kofi Adoma Nwanwani on Kofi TV, the man of God revealed the reason why he rejected that huge amount of money, according to him, the task he was to perform to get the money was ungodly.

Nigel Gaisie failed to mention the name of the NPP official who stood in for the party to extend to him that big offer but he disclosed that it was a top official well-known by all.

“An official from the ruling New Patriotic Party offered me 1.6 million dollars but I rejected. It was 16 billion old currency but I rejected it…there is something called client confidentiality, so I can’t name him”. Nigel Gaisie told Kofi Adoma.

He went on to affirm that “What the NPP official was demanding from me wasn’t right in the sight of God”. The popular man of God disclosed he is always on the lord’s side and will never do anything contrary to His laws.

Nigel Gaisie in a different remark said John Mahama’s Victory coming it’s going to shock people and nothing can change that.

Known to be a strong sympathizer of the National Democratic Congress(NDC) these and more prophecies from him comes at no surprise to all because he has time without number declared them winners.
