The Ministry of Education has deemed some teacher unions’ stance on Dr. Eric Nkansah’s appointment as Director-General of the Ghana Education Service to be unacceptable (GES).
In response to the teacher unions’ claims, the Education Ministry’s Public Relations Officer, Kwasi Kwarteng, said the teachers’ stance is disrespectful and should not be tolerated.
“It’s not amusing. “It is very disrespectful to the country’s number one person [President Akufo-Addo], and we are surprised,” Mr. Kwarteng said.
“We felt the union leaders should have known better,” said the spokesperson.
Dr. Eric Nkansah took over as Director-General of the Ghana Education Service from Professor Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa.
At a press conference on Thursday, the four teacher unions slammed the decision, claiming that the new Director General of the GES is not a professional teacher and thus unfit for the position.
“He works in banking.” “He has not risen through the teaching ranks,” NAGRAT President Angel Carbonu told Citi News.
