Eleven more teachers who submitted fake certificates to facilitate their engagement as teachers are being investigated by the Bureau of National Investigations.
This brings to 135 teachers believed to be operating with fake certificates in different parts of the country who are being investigated by the BNI.
The move is part of efforts by the Ghana Education Service to sanitise the Educational system to ensure that only those with genuine certificates are maintained.
As part of the exercise, the Regional Directors of Education have been tasked to forward verification reports on all teachers in both basic and second-cycle institutions under their jurisdiction.
Head of Public Relations at GES , Rev. Jonathan Bettey, said the names of 11 out of the number from the Gomoa East District of the Central Region have been handed over to the BNI. He said currently, the BNI is inviting the affected teachers for interrogation.
Rev. Bettey said most of them have abandoned the classroom when they realised that the GES was carrying out the verification exercise and was confident that with the assistance of the Regional Directors of Education and the BNI, such individuals would be fished out.
