Teacher trainees have threatened to picket on Wednesday December 28, 2016 at the Black Star Square through to the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service (GES) over unpaid feeding grants.


‘The Government of Ghana over the years has treated teacher trainees so poor and has refused to pay feeding grants to students after the scrapping of the teacher trainees’ allowances and several unfulfilled promises even by top officials like the President and the Vice president,’ the Public Relations Officer of the group Yeboah Bright said in a statement.


It urged Teacher trainees to be at the Black Star Square in their numbers before 8:am.

INTER COLLEGE NETWORK TEACHER TRAINEES PICKET ON WEDNESDAY OVER UNPAID FEEDING GRANTS.


Teacher trainees would be picketing on Wednesday December 28, 2016 at the Black Star Square through to the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service.


The Government of Ghana over the years has treated teacher trainees so poor and has refused to pay feeding grants to students after the scrapping of the teacher trainees’ allowances and several unfulfilled promises even by top officials like the President and the Vice president.


The leadership of Teacher trainees have sent several petitions, letters to the Ministry of Education and Ghana Education Service. Students have put red bands on their arms to lectures to express our utmost displeasure.


Several Press Conferences have been organized. Our leadership has gone ahead even to sleep at the Ministry but “something good” is yet to come out of these efforts.


We are therefore calling on all teacher trainees, media houses and other stakeholders to help us go to the Ministry of Education and Ghana Education Service come Wednesday, December 28, 2016 at exactly 8: 00 am at the Black Star square.


Teacher trainees are to come there in their numbers before 8:00am on the said day.


We count on your usual cooperation.


Thank you
