The Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana (TTAG) has inaugurated a new Judicial Committee (JC) Members.
As a constitutional mandate, the Members of the Judicial Committee were appointed by the National President of the Association Mr. Jonathan Dzunu in consultation with the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Association.
The newly appointed Judicial Committee Members of TTAG were sworn in on Sunday, 22nd May 2022 at a NEC meeting held at Freeman Methodist Guest House, Kumasi in the Ashanti Region of Ghana.
The National President, Mr. Jonathan Dzunu charged the JC Members to work in unity, and togetherness within the confines of the existing TTAG Constitution in the best of the Association and its membership across the Forty-six (46) Accredited Public Colleges of Education in Ghana.
He admonished the NEC and teacher trainees to give the committee the needed support to smoothly and effectively administer their constitutionally mandated responsibilities.
Speaking on behalf of the newly constituted Judicial Committee, Mr Nicholas Kelvin Agboni (Committee Secretary) assured NEC that, the committee shall work with all structures of the Association especially the constitution in performing its functions.
According to Mr. Agboni, nobody is above the Constitution of the Association, that, anyone, either a JC member or NEC member or a teacher trainee or even the president of the TTAG who made the appointment shall be brought before the committee and shall go through the arbitrary procedures of the TTAG if he/she contravenes or breaches the Constitution of the noble Association.
He also appealed to NEC and teacher trainees in Colleges of Education to cooperate with the Judicial Committee Members to perform their roles.
According to the Article 40 of the TTAG Constitution,
1. There shall be a seven-member national judiciary committee which shall serve for 2-year tenure.
2. The sitting national coordinator shall be an automatic member of the committee but shall cease to be a member at the end of his tenure as national coordinator.

4. The committee shall elect its chairperson and secretary from among its members.
5. Members of the committee shall not serve beyond two terms of two years, thus 4 years.
