Eight teachers of Amanhia M/A Basic School in the Akuapem North municipality of the Eastern Region who were queried for pounding fufu at the school premises at the time they were supposed to be in class teaching their students, have apologised for their action.
DAILY GUIDE gathered that the eight teachers who absented themselves from school and used the time to relax over a sumptuous meal of fufu with groundnut soup, were queried by the Akuapim North Municipal Director of Education, Grace Owusua Addo.
The Eastern Regional Public Relations Officer of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Asiedu Acheampong, told DAILY GUIDE at press time that the teachers had officially written to apologize.
“It is indeed true the said teachers were queried, they are eight in number, but they have officially written to apologize for their wrong behaviour and have also written an undertaking to that effect.”
The PRO added that Ms Grace Owusua Addo’s decision to query the teachers would serve as a deterrent to others.
“I believe going forward, we will all know that we are guided by rules so this act will serve as a deterrent to other teachers who in future would want to take things for granted,” said Mr Asiedu Acheampong.
The issue has so far created controversy on social media as the letter is circulating and people are asking a lot of questions on why the District Education Director took such a decision.
