NAGRAT petitions Akufo-Addo to sack Prof Adei as NDPC chairman

- National Association of Graduate Teachers has called on the president to sack the former rector of GIMPA for calling teachers criminals

- According to them the current NDPC chairman was not adequately equipped to appreciate the challenges confronting Ghana’s Education.

The National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), has called on the government to discharge the former Rector of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), Prof. Stephen Adei from his post as Chairman of the National Development Planning Commission.

Their call follows what Prof. Adei said regarding teachers, describing them as “pure criminals.”

The Association in a statement signed by Angel Carbonu said Prof Adei’s current state was not adequately equipped to appreciate the challenges confronting Ghana’s Education and for that matter teaching and learning.

The NAGRAT president said, instead of the NDPC chairman confronting the challenges of the double track programme he rather decided to deviate to attack hardworking Ghanaian Teachers.

He therefore on behalf of the association, called on the president, Nana Akufo-Addo to relieve Prof Adei of his duties as NDPC chairman

“NAGRAT hereby calls on the government to relieve Prof. Stephen Adei of the position of Chairman of the National Development Planning Commission (NDPC) since his pronouncements and tantrums offend the sensibilities of hard-working Ghanaian teachers. His behaviour does not seem to have what it takes to harness our human energies towards national development.”

NAGRAT however defended the commitment of teachers saying that they served the country in every city, town, village and hamlet, sometimes under very strenuous conditions.

The former rector of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), Professor Stephen Adei, earlier said that most teachers in public basic schools were “criminals”.

According to him, most of these teachers do not adequately teach their pupils, yet go on to take their full monthly salaries.

Prof. Adei was responding to critics who argue that the government’s double-track system will affect the quality of education at the high school level.
