Dr.Eric Nkansah has been confirmed as the substantive Director-General of the Ghana Education Service (GES).
A letter dated January 4, 2023, signed by the Acting Director of HRMD at the GES, Ms Angela Frimpomaa Nkansah, addressed to all Regional Directors of the GES and seen by Graphic Online, informed them about the official confirmation and directed that all official correspondence and memoranda should therefore be addressed as such.
“Congratulations to Dr Nkansah, Director-General, Ghana Education Service” the letter stated.
Before his elevation, Dr Eric Nkansah, was the Director in charge of Tertiary Education at the Ministry of Education.
His appointment as GES Director-General took effect from October 19, 2022 amidst protest by teacher unions.
They argued that, he was not a teacher and wanted the government to revoke the appointment.
The General Secretary of GNAT, Thomas Tanko Musah, for instance had argued that the position of the Director General of the GES, has always been occupied by  an “educationist since its creation in the 1970s and remained as such even under military regimes.”
