A Lecturer at the University of Ghana, Legon, Professor Ransford Gyampo has expressed his disappointment and displeasure to the statement that, teachers in the country should resign if they think the condition of service in the country is not good enough.
According to Professor Ransford Gyampo, it does not make sense and it’s inappropriate to make such an argument about the nationwide strike by the University Teachers Association of Ghana UTAG.
Furthermore, the University of Ghana Lecturer again added that it is unhealthy on the part of the Head of Public Affairs at the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC), Mr Ankrah which according to him is mature enough and should not have made such ‘foolish’ comments.
On that note, Professor Ransford Gyampo in reaction to the unpleasant comments from the Head of Public Affairs at the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC), Mr Ankrah took to his social media Facebook page rubbish the comment.
“Telling teachers that if they aren’t happy with their conditions of service, they should resign, is the most foolish talk that can only proceed from the buccal cavity of a small-minded person who couldn’t fully benefit from formal education”, he wrote on his Facebook page.
The Lecturer at the University of Ghana made this comment following the statement emanating from Mr Ankrah who admonished that teachers should resign if they think the condition of service is not good.
However, Head of Public Affairs at the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC), Mr Ankrah speaking in an interview on Accra Base FM indicated that members of the University Teachers Association of Ghana who are on strike cannot continue with their industrial strike if they want to have a negotiation towards an amicable solution of that matter.
