"We are all qualified and have submitted our documents for upgrading but have denied and or delayed with our upgradings without any subsequent notice from our employer, the GES" one aggrieved femaleteacher disclosed.

According to them, there have been a series of meetings with the management of the Ghana Education Service (GES) with regards to solving the upgrading challenges.

"However, none of our engagements havs produced any fruitful result." They added.

Another aggrieved teacher in a very dejected moods argued that it was very unfortunate teachers who qualified for upgrading and have submitted so many documents could still be denied what was due them.

He continued saying their colleagues in other regions have been upgraded to their deserving levels yet for almost three years theirs haven't been done.

The group believe the Northern Regional Director of Education is the brain behind theor woes.

They are therefore, demanding the immediate steps to restore all abnormalities which is causing the delay in their upgrading.

"This is our last day of coming here, because we are of the high hope that our picketing here today will mark the end of the back and forth we have been having with the Regional Directorate of Education.

Because management of the Ghana Education Service, the regional director and other stakeholders will not be enthused about our next line of action if they failed resolve our grievances." The aggrieved teachers warned.
