The Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund) has released GH¢50 million feeding grant to be disbursed to the 38 colleges of education in the country for the 2015/16 academic year, the Vice-President, Mr Kwesi Amissah-Arthur, has stated.
He said the government was working hard to ensure that the late release of funds that usually incurred the displeasure of teacher trainees became a thing of the past.
Addressing students of the Assin Fosu College of Education in the Central Region as part of his campaign tour of the Central Region, Mr Amissah-Arthur assured the students that the Mahama-led administration, with its people-centred policies, would continue to resource the various educational institutions in line with its philosophy of ‘putting people first.’
He explained the 2016 manifesto of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and why the party should be re-elected.
Touching on a wide range of issues on what the next NDC government would do if re-elected, the Vice-President said the ongoing infrastructure projects at all the colleges of education would be prioritised to ensure their early completion.
Cautioning the students against any attempt to vote for a change in administration, he said any such decision posed a serious threat to the progress of the country, adding that “such a mistake will erode the gains we have made so far.
