Was it not less than two months ago that an intensive exercise aimed at fishing out foreign certificated teachers out of the system? Didn’t they tell us some teachers were found to have corrupted the system with the use of faked certificates? Must we all be subjected to these ordeals every two months for crimes we know absolutely nothing about? Did we the genuine ones employ these faked teachers?
We are being forced to travel long distances to fetch our certificates for these exercises whose yields have been nothing more than negligible. Certificates can get lost while they are being transported now and then! Armed robbers can attack us on our journeys and make away with our luggage housing these certificates.
The government of Ghana must find other pragmatic methods of weeding out unqualified teachers and stop lumping all of us into the same soup! We are getting sick and tired of these harassments. Can’t the BNI refer to the information gathered by the teams which recently toured the entire country over the same exercise to take whatever actions for which reasons they are embarking on the exercise again?
Let this notice be served on the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service that we shall not allow ourselves to be treated as third class workers in this country, and the next time such an exercise rears its ugly head, we shall meet it with a force whose consequence will shock the country to its bone marrow!
Why are these exercises not been replicated in other establishments but only the education sector?
This tacitly goes to show that teachers still fall way below the ladder of recognition accorded to Ghanaian workers.
Let this injustice end with this comedy of errors being played with our lives by the introduction of the BNI in this exercise, lest we advise ourselves.
