          Dr Peter Attafuah, Greater Accra Regional Director of Education, who was at the Tema Metropolitan office to investigate the issue, told the Ghana News Agency that the GES would take the necessary action after establishing the truth.

          Dr Attafuah explained that some 31 teachers in the Metropolis who could not meet the deadline for the initial promotion were given the opportunity to submit between April 18 and 21 this year.

          He added that it was during that submission that some teachers alleged that an officer called Mr Victor Mensah Bonsu alias Nana Bonsu was taking monies from them before processing their forms.

          He said all those who submitted during the period had been invited by the Service to help in the investigation.
