Ghanaian comedian and professional teacher, Michael Owusu Afriyie, well known as Teacher Kwadwo, has expressed his unhappiness about the Ghana Education Service (GES).
He registered his displeasure in a lengthy post on Facebook chanced upon by Newshuntermag.com.
Teacher Kwadwo bemoaned over how the GES is making the teaching profession unattractive when some of them are trying their best to make it attractive.
He stated that being a teacher in Ghana is like a slave.
While there are no motivation packages for them, he added that the GES is trying to intimidate some of the teachers.
Teacher Kwadwo made this statement after Abenah Serwaah Mankosa, a teacher who has expressed human interest to feed her pupils is being questioned by the GES.
He added that they will follow this issue keenly.

damn!!! They have started again. They are trying to “INTIMIDATE” Abenah Serwaah Mankosa (The teacher who feeds her pupils).
Ghana Education Service I am so disappointed in u!!!!
I am now beginning to accept that u people are just “Fault Finding Institution”. You can never ever protect Teachers with this attitude,Ghana Education will forever be as it is!!! tu3!!!!
we are all waiting here. u people say she should bring her documents tomorrow at her district office. trust me,we are all monitoring everything here and we will fight for her!!!!!
In as much as we try to make the TEACHING PROFESSION attractive then u people will be making it UNATTRACTIVE!!!
Now,beign a Teacher is like a Slave in this country!!! 1st of all the salary is not good neither do u even “MOTIVATE” us. When we find our ways to do it too,then u keep “fighting” us.
what kinda institution is this??? damn!!!
Since I started sharing Uniforms,no1 from my district office has even called me to say “Well done” before. When I supplied 10 computers to my school,same thing!!! even though I dnt need that from u people but when a group of people said it on facebook that u should punish me about issue u people barely understand,u sent me a letter without even hearing my side of the story to the extent that I was even “maltreated” at the district office by 1 man called “T.K MENSAH”. I nearly stopped teaching that day but I’m still in it because of the passion!!! I sew uniforms to the Needy pupils in nearby villages that cost me 5000-7,000 every month so u people know ur 1,500 salary cnt be a reason I’m still teaching!!!!
Now,back to ABENA’s issue,u people are finding ways & means to bring her down by saying…
*it’s against GES rules to take pics of the kids..
*she is using the kids to take money from people.
*she is using the “school feeding” as her own. (meanwhile the Bowls,Eggs plus drinks are provided by her)
When she started it and she was using her money,did u people have issue with it?
y’all saw what she was doing but decided not to care.Now that she is going viral u people wanna do this to her? hur!!!! is jealousy or witchcraft???
This lady we are talking about just made a Tailor come to take measurements of the needy students and they are going to get new uniforms by tomorrow oo.. hur!!!!
Now,helping the needy is a “crime” in GES books.
we are all waiting for the outcome of the reason why u people have called her. Enough is enough!!!!!
Chaos: Agbogbloshie scrap dealers fires shots at police over de-congestion exercise – ghanapublisher.com
The scrap dealers at Agbogbloshie in Accra are resisting the decongestion exercise by the Greater Accra Regional Coordinating Council.
The scrap dealers and onion traders at Agbogbloshie are being relocated to Adjen Kotoku to help free the congestion in the central business district of Accra as part of the agenda “Make Accra work again” initiated by the Greater Accra Regional Minister, Mr Henry Quartey.
Graphic Online’s reporter Joshua Bediako Koomson who is with the team undertaking the exercise reports that the de-congestion exercise started Thursday morning was moving smoothly until the team arrived at the scrap dealers section.
The dealers set used vehicle tyres ablaze in protest against their removal from the spot.
According to our reporter Joshua Bediako, “They are firing shots and throwing stones at the security personnel.”
“They also started burning tyres”, he added.
He said the exercise aimed at removing onion traders and scrap dealers to Adjen Kotoku was peaceful until they reached the scrapyard.
The scrap dealers argued that they were not served any notice to vacate the place.
“So the military had to intervene by firing warning shots to disperse them,” he added.
Calm down and support Prez. Akkufo Addo – Nana B to Ejura Youth – ghanapublisher.com
NPP YOUTH WING APPEALS TO EJURA YOUTH TO CALM DOWN, SUPPORTS PREZ AKUFO-ADDO’s DIRECTIVE FOR PUBLIC INQUIRY
The National Youth wing of the New Patriotic Party has learned with profound concern reports of the alleged murder of Ibrahim Mohammed aka Kaaka and the unfortunate death of two protesters in Ejura in the Ashanti Region.
At the outset, we condemn in no uncertain terms the alleged mob attack that led to the untimely death of Kaaka and also the use of disproportionate force by the joint security force against the rampaging youth in Ejura.
We sincerely sympathize with the families of the deceased and pray that the good Lord comfort and strengthen them in the difficult times they find themselves.
As agonizing and regrettable as the death of these three individuals are, the Youth wing, in all humility, appeals to the youth in Ejura to calm down and tread a path that engenders peace, love and unity to honor the memories of the dead.
As youth we hold the key to the future of our great nation and we cannot jeopardize this great task by resorting to instant retaliation and violence which threatens the peaceful coexistence in our country.
We welcome and support the directive from H.E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to the Minister of Interior, Hon. Ambrose Dery, MP, to immediately conduct Public Inquiry into the circumstances that led to the unfortunate occurrences on Tuesday, 29th June, 2021.
Again, we add on to the numerous calls on the Police to expedite investigations into the unfortunate death of Kaaka and serve justice to him and the bereaved family by bringing the perpetrators to book.
That said, It is deeply worrying that the opposition NDC seeks to use these very unfortunate and tragic occurrences as an opportunity to undermine the peace and progress we have collectively attained in almost 30 years of our democracy, admired and spoken about in the Sub-Region.
As citizens of Ghana and as Youth, it is our duty to denounce and condemn such statements which rather weakens our strength as a nation in fighting atrocious acts.
We must take up the call for social justice in an appropriate manner which ensures that all are protected and we contribute in the collective effort to support the peace process.
Once again, we solemnly commiserate with the families, friends and loved ones of the deceased and wish the injured a speedy recovery.
Henry Nana Boakye
(National Youth Organizer, NPP)
