If he ever gets the chance to return to the classroom, popular Ghanaian teacher Michael Owusu Afriyie, often known as Teacher Kwadwo, has ironically pledged never to advocate against the Ghana Education Service (GES).
Teacher Kwadwo was fired by the Ghana Education Service for “misconduct” and “breaching the service’s standards,” a decision he had previously promised to appeal.
Prior to his dismissal, the disgruntled teacher launched the #FixGES campaign to pressure the service and government to address issues impacting teachers and the Education Sector that impair teaching and learning.
Addressing an audience at Luv and Laugh Show held at Kumasi City Mall, he said “There is nothing wrong with Ghana Education Service, everything is smooth at that Ghana Education Service”.
“Sometimes I receive calls from my colleague teachers who always motivate me to continue to put GES on their toes but when I go hungry they will never see,” he mocked
According to him, “some will say Teacher Kwadwo, we are solidly behind you, continue to do your best till they fix GES but they don’t know I have not received My salary for a month”.
He added, “If God gives me another chance, I’ll never involve myself in that campaign again”.
“…I have been fired, so I’m sad”, he also sarcastically ended the show.
