The Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana (TTAG) has said it has not received any amount to the tune of GHS50million for the payment of feeding grants as being stated by the Ministry of Education.

The Ministry last week said last week that a total of GHS 50,532,000 had been released for the payment of grants for public colleges of education across the country.

This was shortly after the TTAG tried picketing at the Ministry on December 28, 2016, for the non-payment of the grant.

But TTAG in a statement dated 2 January 2017 said the Ministry of Education’s claim was “deceptive, not trustworthy and unreliable and above all a cover up”.

It said the Ministry’s press statement “is only a cover up to divert the public’s attention from the truth, since after the release we [leaders of teacher trainees]…have done all the necessary checks from the appropriate quarters and the money has since not gotten to the colleges’ accounts”.

The teacher trainees believe that the statement is only a repetition of claims the Vice President Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur made on 19 October 2016 that the money will be paid.

The association has therefore pleaded with the government to with immediate effect take the necessary steps to pay the grants.
