Teacher Exposes GNAT and What the Association Earns Monthly from Staff

The Ghana National Association of Teachers is one of Ghana's most Popular and old teachers unions in the Country. Ghana National Association of Teacher has established hostels in all 10 Regions within the Country and has over 200, 000 Teacher within the Association.

Most Teachers have explained that the Association is underperforming and is not working in the Interest of Teachers in the Country. Some Teachers have explained that per what GNAT gains from Teachers, the new laptops belong issued to teachers at the Cost of Ghc472 can be purchase by GNAT and Issued to all Teachers in the country.

The Association has increased Cancer Fund from Ghc2 to Ghc5, a development most people have described as fraudulent because no teacher since 2015 has reportedly had a cancer problem or reported an issue relating to that. GNAT has about 200,000 membership. 

According to Bayong Marfo, a Teacher with Ghana Education Service, If the monthly dues is Ghc20, they receive Ghc4,000,000 (40 billion) every month 

Yearly is Ghc48,000,000 In addition, they have GNAT halls n hostels in all the 10 regional capitals that generates money for the union 

Unfortunately, they're not accountable to anyone. Nobody can hold the leaders responsible for the income n expenditure of the union. These cheap laptops can easily be purchased by GNAT to all teachers in the country. I wish they don't exist. They have outlived their purpose of existence.

GNAT give loans to staff at an interest rate of 13%, this means that, if one takes Ghc5, 000 from GNAT, he or she is expected to Ghc650 as interest from their own contribution.
