Ferdinand|EducationGhana|November 5| Teacher unions on strike over Contract Extension of Anthony Boateng, the appointment of new GES boss
Three teacher unions have declared a strike action over the appointment of the new Director-General of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Dr Eric Nkansah.
According to the Unions, their action has been occasioned due to the failure of the government to meet the deadline to terminate the appointment of Mr Nkansah.
The Unions are the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers Ghana (CCT-G).
They explained that Dr Nkansah was a banker and not a professional teacher.
“The Teacher Unions did not only register their protest but also, found it unacceptable for a Banker to be appointed as a Director-General of the Ghana Education Service, GES, instead of an Educationist at a time when many teachers who did the same courses and related ones were rejected by GES.
“Because it is not related to education we stated that both the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service, should apologize to teachers for accepting the very qualification they rejected when teachers presented them,” they demanded in a statement dated November 4, 2022.
On the Extension Extension of Service of Mr Anthony Boateng, Deputy Director-General of GES, the Unions said they stated their opposition to the said contract extension, and thereby sounded a note of caution,
that they would vehemently and vigorously resist any attempt to bring Mr Anthony Boateng back into the system, and that the consequences of any such attempt may be too dire to handle.
According to the Unions, they have been compelled under the current circumstances to publicly communicate to Ghanaians their intention to embark on a strike.
“Having reached the November 4, 2022 deadline we gave the government, consequently, we have decided to embark on strike from today Friday, November 4, 2022. By this, we are informing the general public that we are withdrawing our services in all the pre-tertiary education institutions,” they announced.
