The Ministry of Education says it is not interested in any negotiations with the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) over the indictment of the Headmaster of Adisadel College.

According to the Deputy Minister of Education in charge of General Education, Dr Yaw Adutwum, the ministry does not owe the association any explanation whatsoever on their decision to suspend headmaster.

There is no law for us [Ministry] to consult them [NAGRAT] before we make any decision” he strongly stated in an interview with NEAT FM’s morning show dubbed ‘Ghana Montie’.

His comment comes after NAGRAT indicated its resolve to challenge the sanctions imposed on their members over their alleged involvements in illegal admission of students and collection of money from students under the free SHS programme.

Earlier this week, the Headmaster of the Nandom SHS in the Upper West Region, Bro. Joachim Naah was relieved of his position for allegedly being involved in “illegal collection of fees and illegal admission of students under the free SHS programme”.

The other person, the Headmaster of Adisadel College in Cape Coast, Mr William Kusi-Yeboah, has also been interdicted, “pending the conclusion of investigations into alleged acts of violations of procedures of the Ghana Education Service”.

But the President of NAGRAT, Angel Kabonu has noted that the education service failed to involve them during the investigations before handing the heads the punishment.

But, Dr Yaw Adutwum told NEAT FM’s morning show host, Kwesi Aboagye that the ministry will not hesitate to punish any headmaster who will be a hindrance to the students' welfare.

If you do the wrong thing, the law will deal with you, we will sack any headmaster who will prevent the poor from having access to education,” he said. 

Who is not aware of Free SHS in this country? So if the headmaster is collecting monies from students, it’s illegal. We have warned headmasters on several occasions not to collect monies from students,” he added.
