Chiefs in Ofoase petition Education Minister over headteacher transfer

The chiefs and people of Ofoase in Agona East of the Central Region have appealed to the Minister of Education and Director General of the Ghana Education Service (GES), to reverse the decision of the immediate transfer of the head teacher of the D/A Primary School.

They made the appeal in a petition to the Minister through the Director General of the GES.

Reading a copy of the petition at a news briefing at Agona Ofoase, Nana Asare Acquah said the head teacher of the school, Mr Spencer Somuah’s “sudden transfer from the town has come as a big surprise to the people and all school going children in the area”.

According to Nana Acquah, through Mr Somuah, the school had benefited from a 67,000 dollar six classroom block with modern facilities.

He regretted that Mr Somuah had to lead the chiefs to sign for 200 bags of cement in Tema, but as a result of the transfer the consignment had locked up.

Nana Asare Acquah therefore appealed to the Minister and Director General to reconsider their petition and bring Mr Somuah back to the town to continue his good work.

Mr Somuah was transferred from Ofoase D/A Kindergarten and Primary School to Fante Bawjiase D/A Primary and Junior High School last month.
