The Ghana National Council of Private Schools is calling on the Ghana Education Service (GES) to investigate some personnel in its office who demand money from private schools before supplying Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

The Council of Private Schools, in a press release, indicated that some heads of schools in the Bono East Region are being asked to pay GH200 as clearance before receiving the PPE.
