The Ghana Education Service has directed all staff who have retired but still at post to with immediate effect hand over and proceed on compulsory retirement.
This was contained in a statement issued and signed by the Director-General, Prof. Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa.
The statement said: ‘’The attention of Management has been drawn to the fact that some officers who are supposed to have proceeded on compulsory retirement are still at post despite the earlier directives for them to do so per a letter dated the 5th of June, 2017.
Management wishes to remind all Regional/Metropolitan/District and General Managers of Education Units to ensure strict compliance with the following:
2. That officers who have submitted their applications on the correction of date of birth but are due for retirement should leave their position while waiting for the outcome of the decision of management.
3. That all officers who have retired and are still at post should in their own interest hand over and proceed on compulsory retirement immediately.
All heads of second cycle and basic schools are also expected to take note and comply accordingly,’’ it concluded.
