Coalition of Concerned Teachers sack top Officials for misappropriation of funds

Two top executives of the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT) have been removed from office after an Accra High Court, ruled against them for misappropriating funds belonging to the group.

The two Ernest Opoku, President of CCT and General Secretary, Raymond Boagye Darkwa, assumed office November, 2011.

They were cited in external and internal audits, conducted in 2014 for their inability to account for more than 400 thousand Ghana Cedis, but later sued the CCT, challenging the allegation.

The two were subsequently suspended following the audit.

The Chairman of the Disciplinary Committee of CCT, Samuel Antwi told journalists in Accra that the coalition will use all legal means to retrieve every penny from the two executives.

He explained that the National Executive Council of the CCT last year, asked Mr. Opoku and Mr. Darkwa, to step aside, while it conducts investigation into an alleged financial impropriety.

Mr. Antwi indicated that Three hundred and Sixty Nine Thousand, Two Hundred and 85 Ghana Cedis could not be accounted for in an external audit report last year, while Forty Four Thousand Seven Hundred and Three Ghana Cedis could not be traced to any expenditure, income or account balance.
