Veep Amissah-Arthur cautions Ghanaians on unrealistic promises
Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur has cautioned Ghanaians to be wary of the unrealistic and fanciful promises being made by some of the political parties.
He said those promising change are saying so for the fun of it and they must be taken seriously.
Addressing students of nurses and midwifery colleges in the Upper East Region in Bolgatanga, Mr. Amissah-Arthur said real change is already happening across the country.
He said the NDC led by President John Dramani Mahama is offering the kind of change that is equipping people to be able to adapt to new situations as the world has become a global village and therefore competitive.
On nurse trainee’s allowance, Vice President Amissah-Arthur said government’s decision to scrap it is to enable it to invest in critical facilities to give them quality education, comparable to those in the UK and elsewhere.
He said government has come out with a policy on the allowance but it will have to meet representatives of the students as well as the Ministries of Health and Education to further deliberate on the matter.
