    He agrees with the President that teachers cannot become millionaires due to their low remuneration, but says the President should be the last person to make a mockery of the profession.

    Teacher Kwadwo said he believes it is disrespectful to address teachers the way he did, especially when he does not address other professionals in same manner.

    Teachers, according to him, are living in hell already, and woulldn’t want what he described as “any disrespectful comments”.

    He was speaking on Kuro Yi Mu Nsem morning show on Nhyira FM which was monitored by Ghana News Page.

    Mr Owusu Afriyie is also unhappy with the various teacher unions for failing to improve the welfare of professional teachers in the country.

    He said the concerns of teachers always fall on deaf ears as the unions do very little to address their plights.

    Teacher Kwadwo added that he never knew teaching in Ghana was slavery until he entered the profession.
