Hours after the appointment of Dr. Eric Nkansah as the Acting Director General of the Ghana Education Service, the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) say they are not in favour of the move.
According to the group, Dr. Nkansah is not a professional teacher and does not qualify to occupy the position.
Speaking to Citi News, the President of NAGRAT, Angel Carbonu said Dr. Nkansah’s appointment must be withdrawn.
“We are not happy with the appointment because the gentleman who has been appointed is not a teacher. He has no teaching certificate. He is a banking officer. He has not risen through the teaching ranks.”
“We are calling on the government to quickly rescind this decision.”
This comes after President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo asked Prof. Opoku-Amankwa to step down as GES Director General on October 17. The teacher union expressed displeasure at the decision.
