Must Read

The Presidency has admitted to erring in granting contract extension to Director-General of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Prof Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa, in June 2021.

Part of a letter signed by Executive Secretary to the President, Nana Badiatuo Asante, on Monday, October 17, 2022, terminating Prof Opoku-Amankwa’s appointment said, the contract extension was in breach of the human resource policy framework of the Public Services Commission.

According to the letter, the Presidency is convinced that the extending the GES boss’ contract was in “contravention of the Human Resource Policy Frame and manual of the Public Services Commission as it purports to extend your secondment beyond the 3-year maximum limit.”

“Accordingly, the president of the Republic has instructed that your secondment be terminated forthwith, and you are directed to return to your position at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.

“The President thanks you for your service to the nation and wishes you the very best in your future endeavours,” the termination letter concluded.

It explained further that: “The Ministry of Education has informed this office that the exigencies that required your skills and expertise as Director-General of the Ghana Education Service do not exist any longer.”
