President sacks Director General of GES
The Office of the President announced the termination of Prof. Opoku-Amankwa’s appointment in a letter dated, Monday, October 17, 2022.
“The Ministry of Education has informed this Office that the exigencies that required your skills and expertise as Director-General of the Ghana Education Service do not exist any longer”, the letter stated.
Prof. Opoku-Amankwa was first appointed in January 2021 as a secondment from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
The contract was extended again in June 2021 but this extension according to the letter was in “contravention of the Human Resource Policy Frame and manual of the Public Services Commission as it purports to extend your secondment beyond the 3-year maximum limit.”
