According to information gathered by the BBC Ghana from the Ghanaian News Agency (GNA), the Government is set to resume the payment of nursing and teacher trainee allowances using the e-zwich biometric system. 

The payment of the allowance to the trainees has been handed over to the Student Loan Trust Fund (SLTF), the body mandated to disburse loans to tertiary students.

The SLTF has been using the e-zwich to disburse students’ loan over the years and is the same system that will be used to pay the trainee nursing and teachers’ allowance.

The use of e-zwich to disburse such funds is also expected to inculcate in the students, the habit of using electronic payment cards and eventually discourage the over-reliance on cash for transactions.

Commenting on the development, the Chief Executive Officer of Ghana Interbank Payment and Settlement Systems (GhIPSS) Mr. Archie Hesse, commended the government for allowing these payments to be made through e-zwich.
