He indicated that all the grievances facing the Teachers and the Technical Universities in the country have all been resolved to the utter surprise of all the members of TUTAG adding that all the universities can now run graduate programmes according to their capacities while all the research allowances that were due them since 2019 are fully paid.

“The Education Minister is a kind of minister that walks his talk. A lot of our politicians are just talk masters instead of task masters. And this is a minister Ghana needs in order to progress. I am not a politician but I am speaking the truth. When it comes to union matters, we have to speak the truth and the truth is that this minister knows what the ministry wants. It is our hope that God gives this minister long life for the development of Mother Ghana.”

The leadership of the Teacher Union during the ceremony presented a plaque with the Minister’s photograph and a citation as agreed upon by the Congress unanimously.
