Consider the students & return to the classroom- Prez appeals to teachers

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has urged teachers who declared a strike action to return to the classroom while negotiations continue with the government.

The President appealed to the teachers to consider the pending BECE that must be written by third-year students in Junior High Schools.

The appeal follows the strike declared by four pre-tertiary teacher unions over the demand for a 20% Cost-of-Living-Allowance which they say the government has failed to give them.

The teachers say hikes in fuel prices, food, and other issues have affected them and their finances hence the need for the government to give them COLA.

The President asked the teachers to reconsider their decision for the sake of the students.

He was speaking at the Eid-ul-Adha prayers held today, Saturday, July 9, 2022.

He also admonished Ghanaians to bear with the government in the face of the economic challenges.

At the ceremony, he donated an undisclosed amount of money to the National Chief Imam in support of the Eid Al Adha celebration at Independence Square.
