Members of the Teacher Trainee Association of Ghana (TTAG), in collaboration with the Inter College Network (ICON), have embarked on a demonstration against the government.
TTAG’s members say they were supposed to be posted in September this year but the government, according to their intelligence, intends posting them to do the one-year mandatory national service, which, they say was not part of the initial agreement.
TTAG says its members are not ready to do their national service but rather want to be given permanent appointments.
Clad in red to signify their anger, the TTAG members marched through the principal streets of Accra with placards which read: “Thanks for Allowance but post us now”, “You gave us an allowance and so what?”, “Education sector is in limbo”, “Napo must go”, “NPP, we are tired of promises; post us now”, “NPP has betrayed us, GES post us now”.
According to reports, the march started at the Obra Spot near the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange and scheduled to end at the Hearts of Oak Park.
The group will also present a petition to Vice-President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
