Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur has strongly defended government’s decision to withdraw teachers and nurses trainee allowances.

He said the withdrawal has not only increased enrollment but has also enabled government to re-invest the money in infrastructure and equipment to enhance teaching and learning.

Vice President Amissah-Arthur said this when he jointly inaugurated members of the Tertiary Education Institution Network of the NDC at the Nalerigu Nursing and Midwifery College and the Gambaga College of Education at Nalerigu in the Northern Region.

He said it was a difficult but a necessary decision taken by government and urged the students not to think about their immediate comfort; but also the future the Mahama government wants to create for generations to come.

“The welfare of nurses and midwifes is a priority of the John Mahama led government and they would continue to invest and empower them”, the Vice President said.

Mr. Kwesi Amissah -Arthur used the occasion to do some one on one interaction with some of the students to give meaning to ‘Health is Wealth’.

He addressed topical issues in the health sector as well as the investments government is making to create sustainable jobs for nurses, doctors and other health workers.

He also touched on government effort to further widen access to healthcare.
