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.
