We wish to draw the attention of the NTC to Section 60 (a), Part 3 of the Education Regulatory Bodies Act, 2020, which stipulates the functions of the NTC, as Advising the Minister (for Education) on matters relating to the professional standing… of teachers.

We, therefore, register our frustrations with such off-the-head pronouncements and call for an immediate stop to them, forthwith.

We wish to reiterate, that we are not against reforms to education; we stand for the best for education in the country; however, we won’t stand for policies, programmes and pronouncements off-the-cuff;

the Agencies vested with the powers must be allowed to work, and ome out, only when the proper consultations have taken place and consensus reached. We ask for nothing more than this.
Thank you.
Yours faithfully,
THOMAS T. MUSAH GENERAL SECRETARY
