GES condemns attack on teachers

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has condemned the recent attacks on teachers across the country.

The condemnation comes on the back of an attack on a teacher at the Salvation Army Basic School at Asiakwa in the Eastern Region.

The RME teacher, George Somuah Bosompem died at the St. Joseph’s Hospital at Koforidua where he was rushed to after an attack by some six teenagers.

The GES in a statement said it will withdraw its teachers and staff from communities where teachers’ safety cannot be guaranteed.

“Management of Ghana Education Service has noted with grave concern the recent spate of physical attacks and killings on its teachers and wishes to condemn these strongly and in no uncertain terms.”

“Management would like to emphasize that where teachers lives are threatened and the relevant communities are unable to guarantee or cooperate to ensure their safety, the Service will have no other option than to withdraw its teachers and staff from that community,” the statement said.

The Eastern Regional Police Command has arrested all the six suspects involved in the attack.

They have subsequently been remanded in police custody.
