Just a few days ago, four teacher unions declared a nationwide strike over the government’s inability to meet the deadline for their demands for the payment of Cost of Living Allowance (COLA).
This follows the expiration of a June 30 deadline the unions gave the government.
The unions are the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), Teachers and Educational Workers’ Union (TEWU) and Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT).
At a joint press conference, by the education unions on the allowance, the teacher groups expressed disappointment at the government’s failure to heed their calls.
It is at the back of this development that Kumawood actor, Nana Yeboah, has pitilessly descended on these teachers in a viral video.
According to infuriated Nana Yeboah, these teachers are very wicked and ungrateful because, during the COVID era, the government paid them their full salaries notwithstanding the fact that they were home for a full year.
In Nana Yeboah’s slander video to the teaching unions, he urged Nana Addo is sack all of the teachers on strike and replace them with fresh graduates.
Nana Yeboah further described their strike action as “nonsense” because the government is even finding it difficult to fix simple problems but they are demanding more money which is very insensitive on their part.
Below are some of the hilarious and popular comments gathered under the video;
Owura Kojo Hottish – Just look at this (it). Teachers are of no use to you. You can’t read, you can’t write. Look at Jackie Appiah today and thank a teacher.

Yussif Hammidu – Nana Yeboah…I really like you but it seems you have lost your way…You need a little education on this matter then you will understand their grievance….With the lock down issue.. Most institutions paid their staff and remember that its a global phenomenon…I know teachers are the least treated staff of this country…..I stand to be corrected…!!!
