Mr Anthony Aziabah, Acting Upper East Regional Director of Education has called on Trade Unionists to let calm prevail on the labour front to enhance production.

Mr Aziabah made the call, when the General Secretary of Teachers and Education Workers Union (TEWU) called on him.

He conveyed the condolence of TEWU to the Regional Directorate of Education on the death of its Director, Mrs. Elizabeth Ayire Mwinkaar
