Some victims attested that the IPPD coordinators in the districts of Daboase and Nzema East are currently taxing new teachers to pay amounts ranging from the amounts listed above. Wassa Amenfi West IPPD coordinator is likewise typical.
An alleged message sent by Daboase IPPD coordinator reads;
“Good morning, pls you’re being informed that an amount of Sixty (60) cedis would be collected from each teacher at the registration center. The total amount realized would be used to take care of the travelling, feeding, accommodation.. etc expenses of the registration officers from Accra. “
According to the affected newly posted teachers, the coordinators have threatened not to handle the biometric documents of individuals who refuse to succumb to the payment.
This has, however, left the general public and the newly posted teachers questioning whether the officials are getting paid for performing their tasks as a result of this alleged crime.
