Jonathan Bettey’s transfer to Cape Coast was politically motivated. reported earlier of the alleged dismissal of the former spokesperson of the Ghana Education Service, Rev. Jonathan Bettey, who was later trsnsfered to Cape Coast.

“I and my Director General took office early part of last year(2017) and we had a lot of issues we were dealing with. Then someone alerted us that there are some staff whose promotion letter they suspect was fraudulent. So we started investigations into the matter and I invited him and he admitted that he’s never attended any interview for promotion to level of Deputy Director. He was asked where he got the promotion letter from and he said it was a gift from the former Director General to him. Can you imagine this,” Mr. Boateng told Kasapa FM.
