The NDC Constituency Secretary in the Talensi Constituency of the Upper East Region, Augustine Mmi-oni Guure, has re-echoed the sentiments of NDC Flagbearer John Dramani Mahama and other party officials, asserting that the cancellation of the teacher licensure exams, introduced by the ruling NPP government, is a priority should the NDC come to power in 2025.

Mr. Mmi-oni Guure criticized the licensure exams as a “deliberate scheme” by the NPP to reduce the employment rate of qualified teachers who have already passed their college examinations.

He emphasized that the exams were designed to frustrate and deny employment to Ghanaian teachers who have already demonstrated their competence by passing their final exams at various colleges.

“The introduction of the licensure exams by the government was just a deliberate scheme to frustrate and deny the Ghanaian teacher who had already written his/her final exams at the various colleges and passed them all employment. All that we are saying is upon our coming into office, jobs will be created for the teeming youth, and the teacher whom this government says needs a license to practice or teach will not need it but will be employed,” Mr. Mmi-oni Guure stated.

Speaking on A1 Radio about the NDC’s prospects in Talensi, Mr. Mmi-oni Guure expressed confidence in increasing the party’s vote margins from previous elections.

He emphasized his commitment to boosting support for the NDC in the constituency, underlining the importance of addressing the employment issues faced by teachers and other professionals in the region.

The teacher licensure exams have been a contentious issue, with many stakeholders in the education sector arguing that it adds an unnecessary barrier to entry for teachers.

The NDC’s stance on abolishing the exams aligns with its broader policy of creating more job opportunities and reducing unemployment among the youth.
