We Have Not Suspended Teacher Licensure Exams, Ignore Rumours – NTC



The National Teaching Council (NTC) has rubbished reports that it has suspended the teacher licensure examinations for political reasons.

Speaking on Citi news, the Public Relations Officer of NTC, Dennis Osei-Owusu noted that the exam was postponed to 1st and 2nd October due to changes in the timetable of continuing students of the Colleges of Education and not because they are bowing to any political pressure.

“It is just a week change from the date of writing the licensure exams and the issue out there that we are suspending it is totally false. We have not suspended licensure exams and I don’t think we have any plans of suspending licensure exams now.

“There is no pressure on us to suspend it. NTC as an entity is in charge we are fully geared towards implementing our mandate as part of our mandate of professionalizing teaching in Ghana,” he told Citi News.

Meanwhile the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) insists they’re reliably informed by their sources within the NTC that the licensure exams will be halted.

“We also have our sources and our stakeholders within the NTC, but we can’t put out vivid names of our sources. So we still stand by our claims that it will be postponed. It is clear that the government has been unpopular and uncomfortable with this,” Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa stated.
