President John Dramani Mahama has indicated that he would rather lose in the upcoming elections than restore the scrapped allowance of teacher trainees.

In a tweet on his Twitter handle, President Mahama said: “better to lose on principle than win using falsehood.”

He reiterated the stance of the government that they would not reverse the decision taken.

The presidential nominee of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Akufo Addo has promised to restore the allowance of the teacher trainees if he is voted into power after December 7.

Later the allowance of the nursing trainees was restored. This brought a lot of agitations among teacher trainees who demanded their allowance be restored as well. They have threatened to vote against the NDC if President Mahama and other stakeholders do not change their mind.

But President Mahama who is on a campaign tour in the Central Region says his government will not reverse its decision.
