Teachers arrested for demonstrating at Flagstaff House

Sixteen qualified teachers have been arrested by the Police for demonstrating close to the Flagstaff House on Monday morning.

The teachers were protesting to demand immediate employment into the Ghana Education Service (GES) as teachers.

They claim they haven’t been posted since 2014, after they graduated from the various colleges of education.

About 20 others bolted upon the arrival of the Police.

The aggrieved teachers were expected to have picketed at the Ministry of Education to press home their demands.

They are likely to be charged for unlawful assembly.
