The National President was impeached on the 19th of November,2020 during a National Delegates Congress that was described by Delegates and critics as the worst in the Association’s 25 years of existence.
According to NEC and Congress, the Former National President was impeached due to the following reasons.
The impeached president has acted in many ways contrary to the
association’s constitution such us;
1. solely issued out important letters to stakeholders without the attention of the National Secretariat and National Executive Council (NEC).
2. forged the National Secretary’s signature and the letterhead of the association to write a letter to the police without the consent of the National Secretariat. The content of that letter sought to prevent congress from happening as against the decision of National
Executive Council (NEC).
3. misled some invited guests for the 25th Annual Delegates Congress which was scheduled for 18th – 21st, November, 2020 at St. Ambrose College of Education that the program has been postponed without the knowledge of National Executive Council (NEC).
4. has demonstrated a lackadaisical attitude towards congress and election in an attempt to overstay in power which is in clear violation of the association’s constitution.
5. has shown utmost disrespect to members of the National Executive Council (NEC) and indeed all teacher trainees’ nationwide. It must be noted that his actions left teacher trainees’ (delegates) who were attending the 25th Annual Delegates Congress stranded in the Bono region for about 48 hours.
6. due to his actions and inactions, the working relationship between TTAG and our stakeholders has been marred. Consequently, the association has been subjected to public ridicule.

The National Executive Council (NEC) clothed with the powers to remove an officer of the association from office in chapter six article 28 clause 3 which states; “3. Notwithstanding the provisions in 1 and 2 supra.
Where the General Assembly or NEC determines that an officer has acted in contravention to the constitution or has become a serious liability to the association the General Assembly or NEC shall have power to suspend or remove such an officer from office by 2/3
majority of members present and voting.”
This decision was affirmed by the highest decision-making body of the association (Congress) with 209 delegates voting for the removal of the president and one (1) delegate voting against his removal.
As a result, the current vice president master Albert Dunoo steps in as the acting president of the association until congress is held for a substantive president to be elected.
The National Executive Council (NEC) having satisfied all the constitutional requirements wish to therefore inform all teacher trainees, stakeholders and the general public that master Augustine Appiah cease henceforth to be the president of the Association.
