Latest information gathered by MyNewsGh.com reveals that authorities of the Ghana Education Service (GES) have summoned Kombian Awudu over claims he walks 42-kilometers to school every day.
The classroom teacher at Warvi D/A primary school in the Tolon District of the Northern Region left Ghanaians spellbound when he reportedly claimed he commutes on foot a total of 84 kilometers daily to and from school.
A colleague who has already discredited his claims revealed that the teacher at the center of controversy rides a motorbike to school wondering why he lied during the 61st Independence Parade after receiving the standing fan award.
Following pressure mounted on authorities of the GES about the authenticity of the claim, he was on Thursday summoned to answer queries.
“He was invited to answer some queries. In this era who walks that distance….talk less of a teacher”, a source at the GES confided in MyNewsGh.com
Ghanaians social media users have expressed shock about the story with sections questioning the truth regarding the 42 kilometers distance.
Many are now taking it upon themselves to calculate how long the distance is and the time it would take for him to make the walk and back daily.
MyNewsGh.com is unable to as yet confirm, whether the 42km distance is a ‘creation’ of someone or that the teacher, one Mr Kombian, does actually walks that distance twice daily.
Meanwhile, the reporter who wrote the story, Eliasu Mohammed Tanko has denied any wrongdoing indicating that he initially questioned the authenticity of the claim made by the teacher.
