It’s not True “Alawa” hasn’t Been Paid for 4 years- Boako

The Spokesperson of Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, Gideon Boako has disputed claims that some nursing trainees have not been received allowances for a full four-year tenure in school.

“That is not true. Because {Bawumia} is a Vice President, he didn’t have to challenge the student but was not true that somebody has gone to school for four years and had not received an allowance. That is not true. That statement from the student cannot be true,” he said in an interview on CNR.

According to him, the scheme has only suffered delayed payment and not total non-payment.

“What is true is that they have some delays I understand from November last year so it cannot be true… She can talk about delays and that is why it surprised the Vce President to say he would ask the Finance Minister.”

He believes the student made the “erroneous” statement out of the tension of the moment.

Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia during one of his engagements with nursing trainees in his bid to get elected as the President in the upcoming election on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) was questioned about total non-payment by a trainee.

According to the young lady who said she was in her final year, she had not received an allowance throughout her education at the nursing school.

In response, the Veep promised to engage the Finance Minister about it.

Days later, Bawumia announced processes to release an amount of GHC177 million to clear the arrears were far advanced.
