The 2016 aspirant for the position of the General Secretary of the Teacher Trainees’ Association of Ghana, Mr.Bernard Kofu Ansah has been expelled indefinitely from engaging in Students Politics in the domain of the Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana.
This verdict was signed by the Acting Chairman of the Judicial Committee of the Association.
According to verdict,Mr Bernard Kofi Ansah is still yet to respond to the committee’s calls, letters and messages as at issuing this ruling.
Bernard was earlier invited by the committee to answer certain questions which he declined the invitation.
The Judicial Committee established that
all the findings as established in the earlier ruling proved to be true and still stands.
According to the JC ,the broadly refusal of Mr Bernard Kofi Ansah to appear before the Judicial Committee and his failure to communicate to the Judicial Committee on his absence is seen as recalcitrant and an act of defiance towards the Judicial Committee of the Teacher Trainees’ Association of Ghana (TTAG) and the Association as a whole.
“Mr Bernard Kofi Ansah having contested for the General Secretary position should have known better that the Association has a constitution, a document that spells out the functions and importance of the Judicial Committee of the Association”it stated.
The Judicial Committee therefore rules that Mr Bernard Kofi Ansah per his actions is not deemed fit to occupy any office of the association be it local, sector or national.
The JC keenly urge members of the association aggrieved over certain issues and actions to use the appropriate means in seeking amicable redress to their concerns.
ii. Members should at all times adhere accordingly to the calls of the Judicial Committee on any matter affecting or likely to affect the interest of the association and thus bring discredit to the TTAG or its name into disrepute, ridicule or contempt. Such members can probably appeal for a change in date. The Judicial Committee however, has the sole prerogative to accept or decline such plea.
iii. The JC also recommend that National Executive Officers in acting capacities should remain as such until a new National Executive Council is constituted at Congress.
