*VOLTA REGIONAL EDUCATION OFFICE DRAGGING ITS FEET IN ISSUING OF STAFF IDS FOR NEWLY RECRUITED TEACHERS IN THE REGION.
It hadn’t been long when Nana Akufo Addo and his government introduced the free SHS policy, Due to the growing demand of the policy by the student populace the Ghana Education Service (GES) recruited over 8000 teachers.
All successful teachers are to go through processes to generate their Staff ids and verify biometrically in order to receive their salaries. Some regions are almost through with the entire processes.
But for Volta region, the regional education office has been dragging its feet by blaming its inability to undertake the processes on network n connectivity challenges . After several visits to their office in an attempt to find out why the delay, these are some of what they have to tell us.
1. ”We are being delayed because of supposed network issues”which doesn’t seem to affect the other regions
2. That they cannot tell specifically when all the issues will be addressed
Our problem is that if the something is not engineered to get the IDs done and subsequent biometric registration; we will definitely continue to miss out on our salaries whiles our colleagues in other regions receive theirs.
We therefore demand that 1. The national headquarters of education come to our aid to ensure we go through the process timely.
2. Our list for biometric registration must be out before 23rd April, 2019.
3. We must do our biometric before 30th April, 2019.
