The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) is set to outdoor its new General Secretary today, Monday, 2nd December 2019. This comes after Mr. David Ofori Acheampong went on retirement a few months ago.
GNAT is an organization of teachers in pre-tertiary educational institutions and offices in Ghana. The mission of GNAT is to unify all teachers in pre-tertiary educational institutions and strive for better conditions of service and job security as well as enhance their professional status. GNAT embraces the majority of teachers in the public and private institutions with an estimated strength of over 200,000 members.
After several rigorous exercises leading to the appointment of a new General Secretary, the National Council has appointed a new General Secretary and is set to outdoor the individual by close of today, 2nd December 2019.
Checks by the News Desk reveals that the GNAT Youth Coordinator in-charge of Membership Education and Youth Desk Department, Mr. Thomas Musah is likely to take up the job as the new General Secretary for the association after going through the selection process successfully.
Mr. Thomas Musah is one with a rich experience after rising through the ranks of the association. He is expected to lead the Association in fighting for better conditions for his members, protecting and safeguarding the trade union rights of teachers.
