Volta ICT Teachers demand RLG Computers and allowance due them

Scores of ICT teachers across the Volta Region converged at the office of the Ghana Education service on Friday  to demand RLG laptop computers being distributed to ICT teachers at the basic level.

The teachers who came from different parts of the region rushed to the offices of the Ghana Education Service upon hearing of the distribution of the RLG laptop computers which forms part of a package for a training workshop attended by the teachers in2013.

According to teachers they were simply told by officers of the Ghana Education to go and wait for text messages as to when to come for their computers.

The aggrieved teachers were, as a result,  stranded at the premises of the GES and had to depart without getting the devices.

Prior to their departure, several of them were seen either sitting or loitering on pavements close to the Ghana Education Service Regional offices. 

The teachers are also demanding payment of allowances for the government sponsored training workshop organized by RLG Communications for the ICT teachers at the basic level in 2013. 

According to the teachers, as part of the package paid for by government to RLG Communications Ltd was one laptop computer and an allowance of GHS120.00 per participant.

In a text message sent to participants in June, 2014; RLG apologized for the delay in payment of the allowances and asked the teachers to check their bank accounts for the payment. Despite this text message, RLG Communications is yet to fulfill its promise.

The teachers are asking for answers as to what has happened to that money.
