Corruption In GES, Teachers Share Their Experiences

Some teachers in the Ghana Education Service have narrated how officers from the Ghana Education Service Directorate have been extorting monies from them illegally. 

In a post shared by Michael Owusu, commonly referred to as Teacher Kwadwo, one teacher narrated how officers in his district are demanding monies from him and his colleague teachers in the district.

According to the said teacher who teaches in the Upper Manya Krobo District in the Eastern region, each teacher in the circuit is told to pay a fixed amount of money to buy a goat for their new Director of Education who will be visiting their circuit. The goat will be used to welcome her. This the teacher believes it is improper by the directorate. 


More teachers share their experiences

After the post was shared by Teacher Kwadwo, many of his colleagues in the teaching profession decided to share their experiences with officers from the Ghana Education Service Directorate in the comment section.

 “Hw3 teacher Kofi this same issue happened at my district whereby teachers were asked to pay 5gh for our HR who was going on pension.”

Madam Naana Esi Asaba Hayford writes 

“This issue eh…some time ago, after the new districts were created, our district was one of the newly created districts. Hence, a new Education District Directorate.

All teachers were called for an emergency meeting.

The outcome of the meeting was that all teachers are going to pay GH₵50.00 each for six months to enable us buy a car for the new Education Director because it's new, and they don't have any car for the Director. The money was going to be deducted from source. Can you imagine !!!!

Are we the ones who created the new district?”
