I Was Misquoted Says GES Boss

Listen to article

The Director General of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Mr Michael Nsowah says he has never said that the frozen October salaries of the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) are going to be paid.

Media reports on Thursday quoted Mr Nsowah as saying his outfit had decided to pay members of NAGRAT, who embarked on an illegal strike during that particular month.

The report also attracted a reaction from the NAGRAT leadership, who did not understand why the GES boss would make such information available to the media, without first officially communicating it to the teachers.

Mr Nsowah has however told Ghananewstoday that the media reports are misleading, since he was misquoted.

The GES Council said as a precondition for the release of the frozen salaries, the striking teachers must apologize to the President, parents and the entire Ghanaian populace.

The NAGRAT has since refused to do so.

Mr Michael Nsowah however told Ghananewstoday that the GES Council might reconsider its original precondition for the release of the salaries.
