Prof Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa, Director-General of the Ghana Education Service has been dismissed.
The new development was announced by the Office of the President 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.
The letter made reference to DG’s secondment in January 2021 from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology and the extension of the contract in June 2021.
According to the letter, the extension was in contravention of the Human Resource Policy frame and manual of the Public Services commission.
Prof Opoku-Amankwa has therefore been instructed to return to the KNUST.
