Teachers strike comment: Edu. Minister lacked emotional intelligence – Baako
But speaking on Peace FM Wednesday monitored by Kasapafmonline.com, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako stated though the Minister is one of the hardworking appointees his allegation was unnecessary.
He emphasized the need for the Minister to work on his communications and his emotional reactions.
“The Minister said the NDC was behind the strike action I think that communication was uncalled for. When you are negotiating with people who are agitating sometimes how you go about communications is critical and then who you are and what you are matters and has an impact on what you say and when you say it. I think though he’s delivering as a Minister he has a problem with his communications sometimes and his emotional reactions. I think that he will have to take that on board and especially when the agitation is unfolding and people are not sure which is which, and who is right or wrong. How you communicate is very important because you need to get the public behind you. So I think that comment from him was a minus.”
