NAGRAT declares strike over GES’ inability to facilitate promotions



NAGRAT declares strike over GES’ inability to facilitate promotions

The National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) has declared a strike beginning today, Thursday over the inability of the Ghana Education Service (GES) and the Public Services Commission to facilitate their promotions.

According to the association, the failure of the Public Service Commission’s to amend their records has led to delays of promotional interviews.

At a press briefing today [Thursday], the President of the Association, Angel Carbonu called on their members who are in school to vacate the classrooms until further notice.

“The Service Condition of the GES and indeed the public service grants that a teacher is eligible for an interview after serving on his or her current rank for four years. Due to the myriad of problems bedevilling the GES, teachers have stayed on their ranks for more than five to six years without being invited for promotion interviews. As a result of this, a huge backlog has been created. It is a nightmare to be transferred or seek a transfer in the GES these days.”

“The GES is unable to effect genuine transfer requests due to impediments placed in its path. This has brought untold hardship and pressure on teachers in the Service. We call on the Public Services Commission to remove the obstacles it has placed in the path of the Ghana Education Service so that the GES can function. The leadership of NAGRAT can longer fold its arms and watch teachers suffer such pain and neglect. All teachers in schools that have already reopened should lay down their tools and stay out of school.”

A few weeks ago, NAGRAT threatened a strike over the Ghana Education Service’s decision to deduct GHc10 as insurance from teachers’ salaries.

Wedding Canceled as Bride’s Mother Vanishes With Groom’s Father



An ongoing wedding has been canceled because groom’s father eloped with the bride’s mother.

The unfortunate incident was revealed by a friend to one of the families last night via his space on twitter.

A dismayed guest and friend to the bride’s family, Max Vayshia took to Twitter to narrate the incident as it happened.

He posted;

“So this wedding was canceled because the groom’s father eloped with the bride’s mother. Mahd oo.”

As funny as it was, it wasn’t really funny to him. For him, the funny aspect was the fact that it happened live in front of everyone.

“What is funnier is that this is not a joke. It happened live 😂”, he added.

Now, thinking about this, if what we are all suspecting happens, the ex-fiancé and fiancée becomes step brother and step sister. The stepson and daughter become ex-lovers.

While people endorse the decision to cancel the wedding, others believe they were not ready to get married yet. Citing that if they were, they wouldn’t allow the business of two consenting adults to influence the process of tying their knots.
