The New Patriotic Party (NPP) government led by President Nana Addo has cancelled transfer grants allowance paid to teachers.
According to Mr. KWAMI ALORVI, teachers who qualify and apply for transfer have been compelled by the GES to sign an Undertaking to forgo their transfer grants as a prerequisite for approval to go on transfer.
‘This is in spite of the fact that transfer grant is one of the conditions in the Collective Agreement. It is an undeniable fact that not a single teacher who has gone on transfer received transfer grant under the administration of Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh and his government. Why then the funfare by the Minister on NET2 TV?’ he quizzed.
