The Tertiary Educational Institutions Network (TEIN), a student wing of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has given the government of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo a two-week ultimatum to pay national service allowances.
TEIN said it has become aware of the nonpayment of allowance to service personnel for a couple months.
The situation, according to a statement issued by Deputy National Coordinator of TEIN Ekow Djan, is disastrous and highly unfortunate amidst the economic crisis the general public is facing.
“The buck stops with President Akufo-Addo for his wanton disregard towards the services these young persons render to the Republic of Ghana, and most importantly, his disrespect for the personnel and lack of sense of urgency to respond to their plights.
“TEIN gives Akufo-Addo a two week ultimatum to pay the allowance owed the service personnel lest we hit the streets of Accra to openly register our displeasure.
“Again, all other outstanding allowances owed trainees; teachers, nurses, NABCO, Youth in Afforestation etc. should be paid within the given time frame. The failure of our grandfather, Mr. Akufo-Addo, can no longer be tolerated. Enough is enough!”
