Tutors of Akatsi College of Education join nationwide CETAG strike

Akatsi (VR),– The Akatsi College of Education branch of the College of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) in the Volta Region has given their full support by joining the nationwide strike declared by the leadership of the Association.

The nationwide strike declared by the leadership of the Association in a statement on Wednesday, January 5, received the full support of the over 50 tutors of the College.

Mr Ismael Edem Dorwu, the Akatsico branch Chairman of CETAG, told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that “all its members on the college were in full support of the indefinite strike action and would only resume work after government heeded to their demands.

“One core action during the strike would be the withdrawal of teaching activities,” he said.

However, Mr Dorwu said other non-teaching activities on campus would be carried out.

CETAG declared an indefinite strike on grounds of failure by the government to implement the 2017-2020 Conditions of Service (CoS) as agreed for members after both parties had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on September 24 last year.

According to CETAG, the said (CoS) states the effective date of implementation as January 1, 2021, while payment of associated arrears of nine months was to be paid in October, November, and December 2021.

“The Association’s National Council has resolved to follow through with its decision to withdraw TEACHING, one of its main duties as stipulated in the Harmonised Conditions for Colleges of Education effective Thursday, January 6, 2022,” the statement said.

It further directed all CETAG members across the 46 Ghanaian public Colleges of Education to comply with the directive until further advice.

Saki residents commend Kpone Police command

Saki (Near Tema),– The Ghana Police Service Kpone District command has been commended for providing professional security service by increasing police presence and routine patrols in the communities during the yuletide.

Scores of residents in various communities including; Saki in the Nmlitsakpo Electoral Area within the Kpone-Katamanso Municipality of the Greater Accra Region commended the work of the Police which ensured the security of lives and property.

The residents noted that personnel from the Kpone Police Command led by the Kpone District Police Commander Superintendent Seth Tay patrolled the communities at different locations.

The exercise brought some sanity on the roads and in the communities before and during the Christmas season.

Mrs. Margaret Nsiah, a resident and a trader in the area told the Ghana News Agency in an interview at Saki that the community had for the first time enjoyed the Christmas season without records of any major criminal issues.

She explained that, unlike the previous years where thieves broke into container shops and stole their hard-earned investment, such reports were not heard within the community during the just-ended Christmas season.

Mrs. Nsiah narrated that the police were proactive as they put in place measures to scare away criminals from the area, “the police were visible and that was the way to go”.

Other residents including; commercial and private car drivers, traders, and some trader leaders also stressed that crime rates within the community reduced considerably during the Christmas period.

Some of the residents urged the police not to let their guards down saying the criminals were always in the communities waiting for the least opportunity to attack unsuspecting residents doing their normal duties.
