Dr. Akwasi Amakye Boateng, a senior lecturer in political science at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), has advised Ghanaian educators to leave their nation in search of better employment opportunities abroad.
The political analyst claims that the wellbeing of Ghanaian teachers has been mostly disregarded by the nation’s successive governments.
“Years ago, people said the reward for a teachers was in heaven, but I tell you, their reward is in the Western world. Other countries need the service of the Ghanaian teacher badly. They are now hard to find, so if you are a teacher don’t stay here and die. Dr Amakye Boateng said this in a discussion on Kumasi-based Angel FM.
“The youth among us shouldn’t stay here to be disgraced, your reward is in the Western world”, he added.
Speaking on Angel FM in a discussion on the show “Angel in Morning” Dr Amakye Boateng insisted that teachers also deserve better in their own country adding that they need to receive the reward for their good job right on this earth and not otherwise.
Speaking on a research indicating that Ghana has lost a significant number of teachers in recent years, Dr. Amakye Boateng made this claim.
The lecturer holds President Akufo-Addo accountable for the plight of Ghanaian educators, who barely make ends meet.
