The Director General of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Professor Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa has interdicted the Upper West Regional Director of Education, Duncan Nsor.
A letter addressed to him dated 12th February 2020 said the interdiction takes place with “immediate effect”.
This is to enable the Service to carry out investigations into a number of allegations levelled against him including bribery.
“Your interdiction is to facilitate investigations into some allegations levelled against you, which include;
“1. Circumstances surrounding the auctioning of a track belonging to Wa School for the Deaf, which vehicle at the time of the auctioning was under your care and your refusal to inform the school and the Director-General of the development.
“2. Allegations of bribery in the appointment of some Heads of some second cycle schools in the Region.
“3. Alleged deduction of monies from some allowances due to some teachers in the region.”
Mr. Nsor has been ordered to hand-over the office to the Wa Municipal Director of Education, who has been directed to take temporal responsibility for the Region during the period of the interdiction.
The interdicted director is expected to appear before an investigation committee being set up by the Director-General of GES.
“It is expected that you will co-operate fully in this exercise,” the letter copied to other stakeholders said.
