Nat’l Service: TTAG hits streets Wed.
The National Executive Council of the Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana (TTAG) has resolved to go on a demonstration to register its members’ displeasure against the Ministry of Education (MoE) and the Ghana Education Service (GES) for failing to directly employ newly-trained teachers for the 2018/19 academic year.
The teachers are being posted to do a one-year mandatory national service before being absorbed into permanent employment, a decision they have kicked against.
A statement dated Monday, 5 November 2018, signed by Anthony Dadzie and Ibrahim Nketia, President and General Secretary, respectively, of TTAG, said: “It is important to note that the leadership of the association has exhausted all possible avenues in ensuring that the government does the needful by employing the 2018 batch of the newly-trained teachers but they have proved futile.
“In view of this, we are calling all newly-trained teachers to converge on the Obra Spot at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle on Wednesday, 7 November 2018 at exactly 8:00 am to begin a peaceful protest through the Adabraka Police Station road to Accra Hearts of Oak Park, where a petition will be presented to the office of the president.”
“All continuing students who will not be able to join the protest are asked to put on red armbands to lectures on Wednesday. Mentees are also directed to abandon classes on the said day in solidarity with the newly-trained teachers who have been denied direct employment by the government”, the group said.
Speaking on Dinpa 91.3fm Anopa Bosuo program today, Mr Ibrahim Nketiah Cautioned all it’s members to desist from registering for the National Service until their grievances are resolved.
