GNMTA voices frustration over Nursing Trainee allowance delays

The allowance has not been paid since February 2021

Ghana Nurses and Midwives Trainees Association (GNMTA) Expresses Frustration Over Delayed Allowances Despite Bawumia’s Assurances


The Ghana Nurses and Midwives Trainees Association (GNMTA) has voiced concerns over the delayed payment of allowances to its members, despite assurances from Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.


During a meeting with nurses and midwives on May 14, Vice President Bawumia pledged that the Finance Ministry would transfer over GH¢177 million to settle allowances for nursing trainees by Thursday, May 16, 2024.


However, GNMTA President Pascal Adombillah stated that there has been no progress regarding the allowance payments and expressed frustration over the repeated delays.


“For now, we have not had any updates regarding the allowance. The thing is that there is usually a clear-cut communication about the payment, that is the date the allowance will be paid to our members. When you look at it, I would say we have had enough of this. Even the Vice President in his statement indicated that the allowance was supposed to be paid on Thursday. We have not had any information or updates regarding the payment. We have not had any update on whether the money was released to Control and Accountant General’s Department for the students to be paid,” Adombillah remarked in an interview with Citi News.
