The Teachers Affairs Department at the Ministry of Education and Higher Education has decided to suspend the registration of professional licences for teachers at government schools, and no new applications will be received during the current school year 2020/2021, local Arabic daily Arrayah has reported.

The Member of Parliament for the Madina Constituency, Alhaji Abubakar Boniface has disclosed that successive governments perceive the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) to be in the pocket of all past governments.

He made this known in an interview with Happy 98.9 FM’s Samuel Eshun, host of the Happy Morning Show.

The MP, however, believes the Commission is an essential tool for the development of Ghana and should be resourced to
