Michael Owusu Afriyie popularly known asTeacher Kwadwo has been in the headlines for several reasons; the most popular among them is his campaign for better conditions of service for teachers and workers in the educational sector of Ghana. He is a loud advocate of the 'Fix Ghana Education Service' (FixGES) campaign.
Teacher Kwadwo has also tried as much as he can to speak on behalf of students and teachers who suffer poor conditions in the educational sector. He has been seen on several occasions trying to draw the attention of our leaders to pressing issues that students and teachers encounter in their various schools.
In his quest to fight for better conditions for both teachers and students in the educational sector, Teacher Kwadwo has also faced certain tough times along the line. He has also faced a lot of threatening messages from unknown people but he seems to have no fears for these setbacks.
Teacher Kwadwo was unfortunately taken out a WhatsApp group that is meant for all teachers in his district simply because he was fighting for better conditions for the teachers in the district. He revealed that, he was taken out of the WhatsApp group by a district officer called Kwaku Gyasi simply because he was advising his fellow teachers to resist intimidation from any official. Teacher Kwadwo revealed this in a post on his Facebook page earlier today.
“I have been taken out of a WhatsApp group created for all teachers in my district by one district official called Kwaku Gyasi. A WhatsApp group where information is distributed to all teachers. They took me out because I said no teacher should allow him/herself to be intimidated by any district official”, he wrote on his Facebook page.
The question is, does he deserve to be treated this way? How can he be taken out of a WhatsApp group just because he is trying to give a simple piece of advice to his fellow teachers.
