Ferdinand | EducationGhana | December 11 | GES Interdicts 11 SHS Headteachers Over Unauthorized Fees Allegations

 “The Ghana Education Service (GES) takes swift action by interdicting eleven senior high school headteachers in Greater Accra, Ashanti, and Bono Regions for alleged unauthorized fee charges. The GES accuses them of collecting unapproved fees, including house dues, books, calculators, and admission process fees. Investigations are underway to determine the extent of the charges. This follows a pattern of interdictions across various regions to ensure transparency and ethical conduct in the education system.”

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has taken decisive action by interdicting eleven senior high school headteachers across the Greater Accra, Ashanti, and Bono Regions for their alleged involvement in charging unauthorized fees from new students.

This was contained in separate press statements issued by Regional GES offices.

The statements announced that the GES has initiated comprehensive investigations into the conduct of these headteachers.

The affected headteachers are Selina Anane Afoakwa, Headmistress of Kumasi Girls SHS, Nataniel Asamoah, Headmaster of Asanteman SHS, Andrews Boateng, Headmaster of Kumasi Senior High Technical School, Kwadwo Obeng-Appiah, Headmaster of Manso-Edubia SHS, Daniel Boamah Duku, Headmaster of the Agric Nzema Community SHS, Gladys Sarfowah, Headmistress of Nkawie Senior High Technical School, Ampong Ahmed Omar, Headmaster of Collins SHS, Afi Yaw Stephen, Headmaster of Berekum Senior High School, and Joseph Jilinjeh Abudu, Headmaster of Odomaseman Senior High School.

Additionally, the headteachers of O’Reilly Senior High School and Ghana Senior High School, Nadia Lartechoe Annan and Patience Naki Mensah, respectively, are also part of the interdicted group.

The GES accused the headteachers of charging students various unapproved fees, including house dues, books, calculators, admission process fees, and charges for the printing of slips, files, and hymn books.

This development follows a pattern of similar interdictions in the Greater Accra and Eastern Regions for the unauthorized sale of items to students. Mr. Afi Yaw Stephen and Mr. Joseph Jilinjeh Abudu were directed to step aside for selling unauthorized items, including “Borla fees,” “motivation fees,” “lunch bag” charges, and GHC45 for hymn books, SRC fees, brown khaki, and other items, respectively.

In specific cases, Nadia Lartechoe Annan, the headmistress of O’Reilly SHS, has been directed to step aside pending an investigation into the unauthorized collection of money during the admission process. The GES letter, dated December 6th, 2023, cited this action as a violation of the school’s code of conduct. The letter instructed her to hand over all school property to the Municipal Director of Education, Ledzokuku, who will oversee the school during her absence.

Similarly, Patience Naki Mensah, the headmistress of Ghana Senior High School, has been asked to step aside from December 7th, 2023. This follows allegations of the unauthorized sale of ceremonial cloth, tracksuits, and other items to Form One students reporting to the school. The GES letter, dated December 7th, 2023, emphasized the need for further investigation into the alleged sale of items and directed her to step aside during this period.

 

See a list of the interdicted 11 below.

The affected headteachers include:

  1. Mrs. Selina Anane Afoakwa, – Headmistress of Kumasi Girls SHS
  2. Mr. Nataniel Asamoah, Headmaster of Asanteman SHS
  3. Mr. Andrews Boateng, Headmaster of Kumasi Senior High Technical School
  4. Mr. Kwadwo Obeng-Appiah – Headmaster of Manso-Edubia SHS
  5. Mr. Daniel Boamah Duku – Headmaster of Agric Nzema Community SHS
  6. Ms. Gladys Sarfowah – Headmistress of Nkawie Senior High Technical School
  7. Mr. Ampong Ahmed Omar – Headmaster of Collins SHS
  8. Mr. Afi Yaw Stephen – Headmaster of Berekum Senior High School
  9. Mr. Joseph Jilinjeh Abudu – Headmaster of Odomaseman Senior High School
  10. Mrs. Nadia Lartechoe Annan – Headmistress of O’Reilly Senior High School
  11. Mrs. Patience Naki Mensah – Headmistress of Ghana Senior High School

The GES accuses the headteachers of charging students various unapproved fees, including house dues, books, calculators, admission process fees, and charges for the printing of slips, files, and hymn books.

These interdictions are in line with similar actions taken in the Greater Accra and Eastern Regions to address unauthorized fees and ensure fairness in the education system. The investigations will determine the extent of the unauthorized fees charged and appropriate corrective measures.

The GES reaffirms its commitment to upholding transparency and ethical conduct within the education system, ensuring that students and their families are not burdened with unauthorized financial obligations during their academic pursuits. Further updates on the investigations and outcomes will be provided as they unfold.
