Running mate of NDC Flagbearer, Professor Naana Jane Opoku Agyemang, says providing the youth of the country with requisite skills to fit into the job market is one of the issues the NDC Government will give attention to when voted into office.

Speaking on GBC-URA Radio’s Sunrise Morning show in Bolgatanga, as part of her two-day tour of the Upper East Region, Prof Opoku Agyemang refuted claims that the NDC Government cancelled the Book and Research Allowance for University Lecturers. She said the NDC never cancelled the Teacher and Trainee Nurses allowances either.

Prof. Opoku Agyemang explained that, as the then Minister of Education, Government gave a one-year prior notice to the students to be on loans as the allowances will be withdrawn.

This was to increase Student enrolment into the training colleges and abolish quota admissions.

She accused the NPP of changing the system by bringing back the allowances and reducing the number of student enrolment into the country’s Training Colleges.
