It appears all is not well with some group of Teachers following Former President John Dramani Mahama’s comment on infrastructure in the second cycle.
According to the report, Teachers of Senior High Schools in the Ashanti Region under Ashanti Teachers Front (ATF) have discounted claims of massive infrastructural development in the second cycle institutions as claimed by Former President John Dramani Mahama.
They argue that in terms of infrastructure in second cycle institutions in Ghana, the achievements of President Akufo-Addo are unmatched to that of the erstwhile National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration under former President John Mahama.
“…Nana Akufo-Addo’s achievements far outweigh that of NDC’s eight years”, teachers group in Kumasi; Ashanti Teachers Front (ATF) at a press conference addressed by it Secretary, Mr. Michael Mensah observed
According to members of ATF, as teachers from select Senior High Schools (SHSs) in the Ashanti Region, having listened to the flagbearer of the opposition NDC, Mr. John Mahama that he did more than what the current government is doing in terms of infrastructure development, it is necessary for them to set the record straight.
“As teachers located across the length and breadth of this country, we have seen infrastructural developments on in our various places of work”, Mr. Michael Mensah told press men in Kumasi.
He also debunked public knowledge teachers absenteeism under previous administration reduced from 27% to 7% as their check as the Ghana Education Ministry indicate otherwise.
“Whilst the teacher worked for three years and paid him for three months, and expect him to give a maximum best, that was time teacher absenteeism soar up”, the Secretary of ATF disputed Mr. Mahama’s claims of reducing teachers abseentism under his watch.
He, therefore, said
,” based on the aforementioned facts the former President John Mahama cannot be trusted with Ghana’s education, especially, the most monumental social interventions policy, Free SHS”.
