The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) has called on the Ministry of Education (MoE) to urgently convene an emergency meeting with all teacher unions to discuss the way forward for students and teachers affected by the Akosombo Dam spillage.
According to the Association, this meeting is necessary to help these victims quickly catch up on their studies after the spillage.
In an interview with Richard Dela Sky on Eyewitness News on Citi FM on Tuesday, GNAT General Secretary, Thomas Musah said, “The Ministry and the GES should call for an emergency meeting with other teacher unions by the close of this week. We need to discuss how to deploy an immediate intervention to address the situation and get tuition going.”
He further emphasized the need for the Ministry to fulfil its promises.
Meanwhile, GNAT has urged the MoE to promptly engage with stakeholders to restructure the academic calendar to accommodate students affected by the Akosombo Dam spillage.
It has also advocated for the immediate relocation of students whose education has been disrupted by the Akosombo Dam spillage to nearby boarding schools.
