The Ghana National Education Campaign Coalition- Ghana (GNECC) has called on the public to disregard an attempt by a group of disgruntled members to take over its leadership.
“Our attention has been drawn to an attempt by some disgruntled members and staff of the Coalition to hold an illegal meeting to announce a takeover of the leadership of the Coalition. Members of this group who number less than 30 [Less than 15% of our membership of 218] are apparently not comfortable with the current leadership’s firm stance on some key government policies in the education sector, especially the Ghana Partnership Schools project, the free SHS policy among others,” GNECC stated in a press release.
In the press statement, the Chairman of GNECC’s Executive Council, Kofi Asare said the East Legon police is currently investigating a case of fraudulent procurement of consent.
“The said meeting which is being funded by some faceless persons was requisitioned through
forgery of members’ signatures and various misrepresentations, leading to the fraudulent
procurement of consent. The East Legon Police is currently investigating the case.”
However, the coalition reiterates that it will continue to be objective in its policy positions.
“The Coalition wishes to assure all stakeholders that GNECC shall continue to be objective and
resolute in its policy positions and shall not be influenced by any person or group of persons. As a
civil society organization, our mandate is to hold government accountable and nothing less.”
