The Directorate has also in the past few years posted a 38year-old Zackaria Amo to three different schools including The Independence Avenue Cluster of Schools, The Acquaye Memorial School and Mamprobi Ebenezer 5 JHS, all in the Accra Metropolis.

Zackaria Amo who is currently under suspension for impregnating a 15year-old pupil of the Mamprobi Ebenezer 5 JHS is yet to be posted again to a school outside the Greater Accra Region.

Information available to this paper indicate that Zackaria Amo, whilst teaching at the Independence Avenue Cluster of Schools was sacked for impregnating two girls of the school.

The established that when the matter was brought before the Metro Directorate of Education for punitive ?action to be taken, he was rather withdrawn from the school to report to the Directorate near Kinbu Secondary School in Accra.

Our investigations revealed that after a couple of months, he was rather transferred to the Acquaye Memorial School to continue his teaching profession without any appropriate sanction on him by the Ghana Education Service (GES).

Unable to control his sexual desires, he took the behavior to the Acquaye Memorial School where he again impregnated one of the girls and aborted the pregnancy without the consent of the girls? parents.

This paper also gathered that Zachariah Amo was again withdrawn from the school and asked to report again at the GES office in Accra for appropriate sanction but was shielded from the legal actions of the girls? parents and re-posted to the Mamprobi Ebenezer 5 Junior High School (JHS) in the Ablekuma South District of the Greater Accra Region.

The last of his action being a victim of the Mamprobi Ebenezer 5 school seems to also be protected by the Education Directors since his yet to be posted outside the greater Accra Region to avoid being prosecuted by the parents of the victim who are now seeking for justice.

Sources close to GES have indicated that Zacharia Amo after his teacher training at the Kibi Teacher Training College in the Eastern Region is currently teaching without his certificate. Are

According to the sources his certificate is still in the grips of the Principal of the Kibi Teacher Training College after he impregnated the Principal?s daughter during his final year, resulting in the seizure of his certificate after bolting from the school.

Information gathered is also that parent of the 15yrear-old Ebenezer 5 JHS student are ready to prosecute Zacharia Amo for his conduct but, some officials of the Ghana Education Service are trying as much as they could to ensure that the parents do no succeed as plans are rife to transfer him out from the Greater Accra Region to another Region.
