GES cautions against the illegal recruitment of teachers in W/R

The Western Regional Ghana Education Service (GES) is warning institutions in the area against illegally employing teachers despite the freeze on recruitment of teachers.

A statement issued by the GES said “It has come to the attention of the GES that some Directors of Education and their Human Resource Officers have been alleged to be taking money from some individuals in exchange for the facilitation of their employment.”

A statement signed by the GES Western Region Director of Education, David Afram, the GES warned the individuals in the region engaged in the illegal recruitment to desist immediately.“The Deputy Director General of Education, Mr Stephen Adu, wishes to caution Directors of education and their Human Resource Officers who are alleged to be taking money from people with the intention of facilitating their recruitment into the Ghana education Service (GES) to desist from it immediately.”

Government in 2010, placed a ban on the recruitment of employees in the public sector as part of measures to stabilize the economy and effectively manage the public wage bill.

The embargo has over the years increased the rate of unemployment in the country. The sectors which have largely been affected by the embargo are health and education.

The GES payroll, for example, has been seen to be bloated with ghost names and duplicated documents putting a strain on governments finances.

Some heads of education institutions and personnel from the Account-General’s office have also been accused of engaging in shady deals that illegally drain revenue from government coffers.
