The Minister of Education is accusing teachers of allowing the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to influence them.

Dr Mathew Opoku-Prempeh claimed credible information available to him suggested that some NDC members met with some teacher groups to plan the strike.

His comment follows a nationwide strike declared by three teacher unions effective Monday, December 9, 2019 over failure of government to pay legacy arrears of members.

They are Ghana National Association of Teachers, National Association of Graduate Teachers and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers.

The aggrieved teachers argue that, the arrears span the period 2012 to 2016 – a situation they described as worrying.

But, a livid Education Minister on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme, Friday said the action taken by the teachers was political.
