“Management of Ghana Education Service (GES) wishes to once again remind the general public especiaily political party representatives who would be assigned by their parties fo observe the process on the various campuses, that, the schools should not be used as a place for partisan politicking.”
She further indicated that “Managerment of GES urges all who will take part in the registration exercise to strictly comply with the COVID-19 health and safety protocols.”
