Fan calls Sarkodie’s wife a villager and an arrogant fool.

Sarkodie and his wife Tracy Sarkcess have been branded unsupportive by a fan on twitter. It all started when Tracy made a tweeted about the state of the Ghanaian music.

She said that Ghanaians should continue to support local artiste because a majority of them were doing everything on their own.

” So please guys let’s big up a lot of our Ghanaian artistes because they are doing this alone with mostly no help but just pure talent. Hardly anyone invest in them although we got so many rich ppl in this country and no industry structure!”.

This angered a fan who thought if rich people could help in the music industry, then Sarkodie and his wife (Tracy) should also help other artistes.

The fan quizzed Tracy as to how many artists they have signed on their record label. “aren’t You rich too??? How many artists do you have on your record label?”

Another fan took the opportunity to insult the first lady of Sarkcess Music by calling her a villager and arrogant. “When a Villager becomes rich and acts as an Arrogant fool .. Sark must leave your ass”.

Other fans came in to defend Tracy whiles others also took advantage of the situation to criticize her and her husband.

We will employ new teachers if strike continues – GES Council Chairman warn.

Ghana Education Service (GES) Council Chairman (Michael Nsowah) has warned striking teachers to go back to the classroom. According to Mr Nsowah, the Labour Commission has declared the strike by GNAT, NAGRAT and CCT as illegal.

He said that teachers have a contractual obligation to teach children who are currently in various public schools. He said that since the Labour Commission sees their strike as illegal, it would be better for them to go back to the classroom.

He made this pronouncement on Adom Fm’s Dwaso Nsem. When asked about what the GES was doing about the current situation, Mr Nsowah said they are collecting data to find out the teachers who are not performing on the job.

He called on all headmaster to do discharge their responsibilities by reporting any teacher who had been absent or refusing to teach.

The Council Chairman further added that there many graduate teachers with certificates looking for jobs. The GES will consider replacing any teacher who refuses to work.

“We are still monitoring the situation and if they still continue with their strike action, we will then be forced to recruit new teachers,” repeated Mr Nsowah.

Three teacher unions, Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT) on December 5, 2019, warned the GES of possible strike action if the state failed to pay salary arrears owed its members.

Teachers who were interviewed by our outfit said Mr Nsowah was bluffing. This is because their decision to strike is backed by law and also it will be difficult to replace the over 200,000 teachers in the country.

The popular Actress and Comedienne, Afia Schwar has revealed that Efia Odo is not the owner of the wine shop as made to believe. According to her, Odo is just a manager of the wine shop. “sister Efia is a manager, not a CEO.

She revealed that the owner of the wine shop has allowed her (Odo) to run the company because of her popularity.

Therefore Efia Odo’s claim that she cannot afford a car because of the shop couldn’t be true. She said a post by Shatta Wale on Instagram drew her attention to the fact that Efia Odo is rather a manager and not the owner.

The comedienne went further to troll Efia Odo for misleading people to believe the wine shop belonged to her.

The fact that Efia Odo is the manager does not imply that she does not have any stake in the company. It could be a partnership where the one with the majority stake is regarded as the owner.

Efia Odo is yet to respond to these allegations raised by Afia Schwar.

GNAT, NAGRAT and CCT to go on strike on Monday.

Members of Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) and Coalition of Concerned Teachers have announced a strike action beginning Monday, 9th December 2019.

This decision came as a result of the government’s failure to pay them some arrears which have accrued since 2012. The General Secretary of GNAT who was speaking on Angel Fm stated that they have engaged government on many occasions but has proved futile. He said the government had ignored all their pleas.

They then gave the government an ultimatum which is today, th December 2019 to address the issie and pay the monies due them.

They have therefore decided to use this strike action to let the government know how serious they are. According to the General Secretary the strike will begin on Monday.

He advised all the members of these Associations to make sure they do not report to work on Monday until their demands are met.

“No teacher should go to school until the money hit the account”.

This strike action will affect both teachers basic schools and the secondary schools.

In a time where secondary schools are using the double track system, this will go a long way to affect the current group of students in the various institution.

KNUST students threaten to demonstrate against the mid-sem act.

Students of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology have expressed their displeasure at the Mid-Semester Break Act. The new act was the decision of the SRC parliamentary council of the university. It must be noted that the resolution of the SRC parliamentary council is binding on every student.

The new act stipulates that some activities in the school such as the college week celebrations and hall week celebrations.

MID SEMESTER BREAK ACT 2019

“In the exercise of the powers conferred on the SRC Parliamentary Council by Article 37 of the SRC constitution, 2011 (as amended), this proposal is made.

1. There shall be a one-week break, each semester, after the mid-semester examination

2. The first one-week break in the first semester is reserved for Colleges to observe their College week celebration.

3. The second one-week break in the second semester is reserved for the celebrations of Hall of residence week.

4. All colleges and halls shall plan their college and hall weeks respectively, to fall within the stipulated dates for the one week break.

5. All College Associations and Halls are to submit a full plan of their activities for the academic year within the first month of the first semester to the Dean of Students,

(i)The plan of activities should be co-signed by the College or Hall President,

Secretary, Treasurer and Association Speaker of Parliament or Senate.

(ii) The activity plan should include a proposed timeline and schedule for all the activities in the academic year.”

official release by Knust SRC

This means that all college week celebrations will be held during the mid-sem break in the first semester. All Hall week celebrations will also be held in the second semester during the mid-sem break. Previously, colleges and halls in the university organized their week celebrations at different times.

This new act has angered some students and they have threatened to demonstrate if the act is not revoked. They expressed their disappointment in the SRC. This is because they believe that certain members of the school’s administration are behind this ACT.

It can be recalled that the KNUST went on a massive demonstration against the management of the University after they decided to implement certain decisions. One of the reasons for the demonstration on 22 October 2018, was management’s decision was for all halls/ college week celebrations to be held in one particular week.

The students believe that their reps (SRC) have turned their backs on them after they fought to make sure such a decision was reversed. They have therefore called on all stakeholders to ensure that this new directive is shredded.

If their pleas are not met, they are going to embark on a demonstration to show their displeasure.
