The Chairman of the Ghana Education Service (GES) Council, Micheal Nsowah, says the headteacher for Tempane SHS in Upper East Region will only be reinstated after the GES investigations into the issue are conducted.

A National Organizer hopeful of the National Democratic Congress, Akamba Joshua Hamidu during his Upper East regional tour was seen in a video mischievously influencing SHS students against the very Free SHS system.

He met with some female students in the Tempane Constituency in the Upper East Region and in addressing them, asked the students to say “shame” to Nana Addo which they also did comfortably.

The Upper East Regional Director of Education, Augustine G Ayirezang, after the incident suspended the headmaster of Tempane Senior High School for allowing the school to be used for campaigning purposes.

Speaking to Kaakyire Ofori Ayim on Atinka AM Drive Monday,  Chairman of the Ghana Education Service (GES) Council, Micheal Nsowah, explained that the suspension of the head will deter the heads of other schools from allowing politicians to use school premises as campaign grounds.

He added that such actions by heads of schools bring rivalry between the community and the administration of these schools.

“The report on the issue will be ready by Tuesday and the necessary sanctions will be meted out to persons who will be found guilty,” he added.

Former President John Dramani Mahama has, however, said that the suspension of the headmaster of the Tempane Senior High School (SHS) in the Upper East region by GES explains how intolerant the NPP government is.
