Striking Teacher Unions Are Motivated by Selfish Interest – Owusu Bempah



Deputy Director of Communications for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Ernest Owusu Bempah has accused the leadership of the striking unions of being motivated by selfish and parochial interest following their strike.

Mr Owusu Bempah said his investigations have revealed that the unions have hidden agenda for rejecting the new Director General of the Ghana Education Service (GES) Dr Eric Nkansah, not because he is banker as is being claimed by the unions.

He has asked them to come clean on their action and call off the strike for the sake of the innocent school children.

Speaking to journalists in Accra on Thursday November 10,  he said “The strike is unjustified, uncalled for, it is criminal and illegal.

“The unions are misleading the members. What do they know? What have they got to hide? Is it true the reason given that Dr Nkansah is a banker and that he is not fit to lead the GES? Is it the real truth or they have a big secret that I also know?

“My investigation has stumbled on a mind blowing exclusive that suggests that the reasons that they giving against Dr Nkansah is baseless and a cover up for their alleged criminal activities behind the scenes.

“We all know Dr Eric Nkansah has been a teacher. What is different that makes them hold the whole nation ransom because if this trivial matter. I have the evidence that goes to suggest that they have another ulterior motive for what they are doing.

“I am calling on all innocent teachers who are being led astray by their so-called gang of seven the Concerned Teachers, who have their own personal interest in this and have tried to convince other teachers to follow the band wagon to come clear, especially the key leadership. They shouldn’t follow blindly. Our children are innocent and so they should go back to the classroom.”
