The teachers were queried for misconduct by the Municipal Director, Ms. Grace Owusua.
A query letter dated March 27, 2017, to one of the teachers said the teacher, Ansah G. Darkoa, is expected to "explain why you should not be sanctioned for misconducting yourself in the following ways:
1. For pounding fufu and eating in school during class hours
2. Refusing to teach after enjoying the meal."
However, the Eastern Regional Public Relations Officer of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Asiedu Acheampong in an interview with Accra-based Citi FM said "It is indeed true the said teachers were queried, they are 8 in number and they have written officially to apologize for pounding fufu during school hours, they have also written undertaken to that effect."
"I believe going forward we will all know that we are guided by rules; so this act will serve as a deterrent for other teachers who in future want to also pound fufu in school," he added.
