He stated, “They [GES] have taken the decision where four of them [the headteachers] have been asked to go to their various schools and four of them have been swapped from their former schools to different schools.”

Yeboah further detailed the transfers, indicating changes in leadership positions at various schools in the region.

CHASS previously criticized the Ghana Education Service's handling of some headteachers amidst the allegations, particularly concerning the lack of communication with affected individuals. Many headteachers reportedly did not receive formal notification of their indictment despite widespread media coverage of the allegations against them.
