Michael Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, a comedian and educator from Ghana better known by his stage name Teacher Kwadwo, has expressed dissatisfaction with the way the nation is currently run.
Even though he ran for President Nana Addo in 2016, he claimed that he has been unsatisfactory.
The teacher who is in trouble with the law expressed his sadness over the state of the nation in an interview with Metro TV in Accra.
He was asked by Bridget Otoo, the host of the One on One program, if he regretted having backed Akufo-Addo. “No, no, no,” he retorted. Why should I feel bad about it now that it’s over?
“Whether you’re sorry or not, it’s already happened, so let’s figure out what to do next. I’m just sad about how things have turned out because this is not what I expected. It’s just sad,” he emphasized.
In the education sector, he complained about how poorly the Free Senior High School Policy had been put into place. He blamed the government for the lack of textbooks and bad infrastructure in some parts of the country.
Teacher Kwadwo was fired by the Ghana Education Service in 2021. Among other things, the letter said that he was grossly disobedient. Several critics said that the popular teacher was fired because he worked for teachers and students.
In a recent video, he talked about how a new school building for Kofi Gyae Me Primary School students had been locked up and that some of its rooms were being used by forestry commission workers.
Teacher Kwadwo can be heard yelling about how the building wasn’t being used for what it was meant for.
“This room is supposed to be the office of the headmaster, but it is locked. This is another room that is supposed to be a classroom for the children, but it is being used by the Forestry Commission right now. Look at where the children are learning, “On Friday, June 17, 2022, he cried in the video.
