We can only do side jobs if we boycott class— Teacher Kwadwo to Akufo-Addo
Famous comedian who doubles as a teacher, Michael Owusu Afriyie, known in the industry as Teacher Kwadwo, has queried the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo over his recent statement that teachers should have a side job if they want to get rich.
Teacher Kwadwo noted that teachers work throughout the week and have no ample time to do other jobs as stated by the president.
President Akufo-Addo during his meeting with some officials of the Ghana National Association Of Teachers (GNAT) encouraged teachers to do other jobs as teaching was not a sole work that could make them millionaires.
He said teaching was a service to the nation and no one could make millions out of a service hence his call.
Reacting to the comment on his social media page, Teacher Kwadwo asked the time a teacher could use for the side job.
“Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo u said, we the teachers should do SIDE JOBS. Please oo, if you care to know we go to school from MONDAY to FRIDAY then rest on weekends.
So what time are we using to do the SIDE JOBS?” he queried.
Teacher Kwadwo said the only way a teacher could do other jobs was to boycott class in the course of the week.
He then proposed that teachers should be allowed to go to school only on Mondays to Tuesdays in order for them to use the remaining days to do the side jobs.
“So Mr President can you please let us go to school on only Mondays and Tuesdays so we use the rest of the week to do our side jobs? This is my humble plea,” he added.
