As teachers in the country have been urging the government for better conditions of service, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said teaching as a profession is a low paying job for teachers to become millionaires.
His Excellency Nana Akufo-Addo disclosed this speaking in a viral interview video circulating on various social media platforms sighted by EducationWeb.com.gh.
Advising teachers on how they can make a contribution to the welfare of society, Nana Addo encouraged them to aside teaching do other jobs that will fetch them enough money.
“Nevertheless I don’t think anywhere in the world that people go into teaching and expect to become millionaires and make money if you want to do that you do other things,” the President told teachers.
But Ghanaian teachers have described unfortunate and discouraging the comment of the Commander in Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces adding that his words were inconsiderate.
Meanwhile, the Nana Akufo-Addo led government has promised to distribute state of the art brand new laptops to teachers in the country this year to improve teaching and learning.
