Share this

The Board Chairman of the Ghana Education Service, Michael Nsowa, has described the striking teacher unions as ungrateful .

Speaking to Empire FM Tuesday the GES Council chair questioned why the teachetrs are striking even though most of them have been paid.

“I don’t understand this strike action by the teachers, this is a debt we inherited from the the erstwhile Mahama administration, we have takien steps in clearing the arrears and as we speak over 87,000 out of 120,000 of the teachers have been paid.

“So I don’t understand this strike when in actual sense majority of them have been paid, the unions should bear in mind that it was government through the Ghana Education Service that employed them and not their unions so they should ignore their leadership and go back to the classrooms,” he stated.

He revealed that the board met on Tuesday November, 2019 and has requested for the remaining list from the audit service to be processed to be paid.

He denied claims that he had threatened the teachers with termination of their contract.
