Teacher unions have appealed to Mr Anthony Boateng to respectfully decline the contract extension by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.


Mr Akufo-Addo has decided to extend the contract of service of the Deputy Director-General (Management Services) of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Mr Boateng for a year.


A press statement dated August 19, 2022, signed by the Secretary to President Nana Bediatuo Asante, disclosed that the service extension started on August 17, 2022, and expected to end on August 16, 2023.


“I am pleased to inform you that the President of the Republic has granted you a further one-year contract of service as Deputy Director-General (Management Services) of the Ghana Education Service, effective 17th August 2022 to 16th August 2023.”



But the teachers – the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT-Ghana) and Teachers & Educational Workers’ Union (TEWU) – who want all officers who are due for retirement to vacate their post said he should decline the appointment.



A statement issued by the four teacher unions said “The weekend has been inundated with concerns and agitations by the rank and file of education workers and pre-tertiary education and other stakeholders on the issue of post retirement contact extension to the Deputy Director General of Education and also the stay in office of other retired persons in education and the Ghana Education Service.

“The leadership of the unions and pre-tertiary education have assessed the situation and concerns and call on the former Deputy Director of GES Mr Anthony Boaten to respectfully decline the offer from the President and the Ministry of Education.”


“We also call on the Director-General of the Ghana Education Service to direct all retired persons in the GES to hand over immediately to the next in line and proceed on their compulsory retirement.

“If by 30th September 2022, such persons are still at post, we will call on our members to disregard directives issued by these persons.”
