Members Of Parliamentary Select Committee For Education Endorse Dr Eric Nkansa’s GES Appointment

The appointment of Dr Eric Nkansa has over the weeks generated a lot of controversies. Many have kicked against his appointment because of his banking background. They are of the view that, a banker is not qualified to be the Director General of Education Service instead he should be sent to banking sector to help arrest the Cedi from Depreciation.

Nonetheless, the Chairperson for the Parliamentary Select Committee on Education, Hon. Kwabena Amankwa Asiamah and Ranking Member, Hon. Peter Kwasi Nortsu-Kotoe paid a courtesy call on the Ag. Director-General of GES on Monday 31st October, 2022.


The meeting was aimed at congratulating the Ag. Director-General and wishing him well in his new role.


The Honorable MPs and members of the Parliamentary Select Committee on Education also assured Dr. Nkansah of their support and guidance to help GES continously fulfill its mandate.


In a similar fashion, the Leadership of the Teachers’ and Educational Workers’ Union (TEWU) paid a courtesy call on the Ag. Director-General of GES in his office on Friday, 28th October 2022.

Speaking on behalf of leadership, the TEWU National Chairman, Ambrose Kwadjodza congratulated the newly appointed Ag. Director-General and assured him of their willingness to work with him to ultimately improve learning outcomes in schools.

The leadership of TEWU highlighted a few of the pressing needs that require urgent action from GES and appealed to Dr. Nkansah to speedily address these challenges.

The Ag. Director-General appreciated TEWU for the visit and assured them of his commitment to facilitate and address the issues they mentioned.

That’s notwithstanding, two other teacher unions GNAT and NAGRAT have vehemently kick against the appointment, calling it illegal. They have however given the president up to 4th of November 2022 to revoke his appointment and that of Mr Anthony Boateng with immediate effect of fave industry action.
