NSS saga: MoE misrepresented facts – TTAG


Members of the Teacher Trainee Association of Ghana (TTAG) have denied reaching an agreement with the Ministry of Education (MoE) with regards to National service postings.

A statement issued by Anthony Dadzie and Nketia Ibrahim, President and Secretary, respectively, of TTAG, issued on Thursday November 1 said : “Our attention has been drawn to a statement issued by the Public Relations unit of the Ministry of Education stating that the leadership of the teacher Trainees’ Association of Ghana (TTAG) has ‘agreed’ to discussions that came up in the meeting with the Minister for Education.

“We will like to state categorically that the said statement does not represent the true outcome of the meeting. There was no sort of agreement as stated in the press from the Ministry of Education.”

The statement added: “Though suggestions were raised that TTAG would be meeting with NSS and GES in the coming days for further discussions. The leaders of the Association met with NSS on Wednesday, 31st October, 2018 and it was informed that NSS has been mandated to post Newly Trained Teachers this year for National Service instead of direct employment by GES.

“The leadership is therefore looking forward to meeting GES also for insight as far as this directive is concerned since it is the sole employer of teachers. All Newly Trained Teachers should refrain from registering for national service.

“That notwithstanding, we are calling on the Ghana Education Service to employ Newly Trained Teachers as a matter of urgency.”
