The Ghana Education Service (GES) in a missive signed by the Acting Director of Human Resources, Angela Frimpomaa Nkansah on 4th January 2023 has confirmed Dr. Eric Nkansah as the new Director-General of the Ghana Education Service.
Dr. Eric Nkansah was appointed after Professor Opoku Amankwah was relieved of his obligations as the Director-General of GES on 17th October 2022.
Dr. Nkansah has served as the Acting Director-General of Service after replacing Professor Kwesi Amankwah since.
Three (3) Teacher Unions Opposed his Appointment
It would be recalled that Three (3) Teacher Unions; Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), the National Association Of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), and Concerned Teachers – Ghana ( CCT – GH ) seriously opposed his appointment as they said his profile does not guarantee him to be appointed as the Director-General of Ghana Education Service.
They then embarked on strike action for days just to register their pleasure with his appointment as the Director-General.
However, information chanced upon by Coleman Publications reveals that Dr. Eric Nkansah has been confirmed as the Director-General of the Ghana Education Service effective 4th January, 2023.
In effect, all correspondence and memoranda should be addressed as such.
