Akufo Addo must Apologise to teachers - Daniel Fenyi

An educationalist and a counselor, Daniel Fenyi has said the President should apologize to teachers for his directives that teachers and final year students should be given one hot meal a day.

According to the educationalist, health workers were given tax-free salary while frontline workers bagged home 50% salary increase, but in their case, teachers are giving 1 hot meal a day.

"Health workers were given tax-free salary and frontline workers bagged home 50% salary increase for their efforts towards reducing the Covid'19 menace." he said in release to the press.

In the case of teachers, 1 hot meal a day is given them for their contributions in this covid'19 era. This even comes as an afterthought given that basic schools re-opened about 2 months ago, i.e.,29th June."

According to him, it is an insult to the teaching profession

"This is blatant insult and disrespect to the teaching profession. This action of government emphasises how the country sees and treats the work of teachers as insignificant and valueless." he opined.


He therefore call on all educational leaders to stand up and speak against this.

"GNAT, NAGRAT, CCT and all relevant teacher unions and stakeholders must rise to condemn this abuse of teachers." he added.  

He further stated that, a country cannot develop if we neglect the efforts of teachers.

"A country which keeps on treating teachers as nonentities whose efforts can be paid off with a mere meal cannot witness any better development."
