The students have threatened to embark on nationwide strike if the allowance policy is not reinstated within a week by government.

Daniel Osei Kofi, President of the Teacher Trainees Association said the government of government to replace the teacher trainee allowance with student will cause loss to the nation as most of the students cannot afford to pay their school fees and other educational materials without government support.

He added that the students have vowed not to return if they needs are not resolved by government immediately.
