The Roles of School Improvement and Support Officers (SISOs) in GES

The Wenchi Municipal Directorate of the Ghana Education Service (GES) has initiated an inquiry to uncover the circumstances surrounding an alleged incident involving students of Saint Paul’s Anglican Basic School in Wenchi swearing by a deity.

Reportedly, a teacher named Emmanuel Tweneboah is accused of pressuring his students to swear by a deity of their choosing to demonstrate their innocence in the disappearance of his mobile phone.

The phone went missing on September 1, 2023, during school activities, prompting Mr. Tweneboah to employ this unusual strategy in an attempt to recover it.

In response, Nana Nketia Agyemang Opambour II, the Chief of Gensoso, has instructed Mr. Tweneboah to immediately reverse the curse.

This directive was given during a visit by a team from the GES office to Gensoso, a neighborhood in Wenchi where Saint Paul’s Anglican Basic School is located.

David Baffoe, the Public Relations Officer of the Wenchi Municipal Directorate of GES, has informed that Nana Nketia Agyemang Opambour II learned of the incident and invited GES officials to his palace. There, he urged the teacher to undo the curses.

“We have already engaged in discussions with the teacher in question and the school authorities to expedite the resolution of this matter,” Mr. Baffoe noted.

He also clarified that although the Chief of Gensoso has directed the teacher to reverse the curses, GES will continue its investigation, and if the teacher is found guilty, appropriate sanctions will be applied.
