The Association of Teacher Trainees in Colleges of the Northern Sector (ATTRICONS) has petitioned the Ghana Education Service through a peaceful demonstration on the streets of Bolgatanga Municipality over the Ghana Education Service and the Ministry of Education’s inability to employ all newly trained Teachers.
The newly Trained Teachers want the President of Ghana, Nana Addo Akufo, as a matter of urgency to sack the Minister of Education and some Senior staffs at the Ghana Education Service over their inability to put proper measures in place to adjust to the current predicament happening at the Education Sector.
The President of ATTRICONS, Atagabe A. Blastus, said it is a deliberate act by the Ghana Education Service and the Minister of Education not to employ them.
“On February 6, 2018, we were directed by the Ghana Education Service to complete an online registration forms placed on their website, which will aid in our posting this year and each prospective teacher was asked to pay Ghc10.00 for online posting. About sixteen thousand (16,000) newly trained teachers went through this process to secure their employment for the 2018/2019 academic year, but it is a different story today.” He said.
He claimed that the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service are only anxious about their stomach and nothing else.
“We believe the President of the Republic of Ghana, and the Vice President are watching our sufferings. We want to say, the entire membership of TTAG, our parents, siblings, Tutors and the teaching fraternity is not happy with the attitude of the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service for their inability to post all newly tained Teachers. Our heart are bleeding, which will definitely cause us to advise ourselves 2020 Election, if nothing urgent is done.” He threatened.
