“I have a master’s degree in science education from Winneba, and I graduated in 2017. do you know that they pay me an allowance on the degree because I have a higher degree relevant to the subject I’m teaching,” he told host DJ Nyaami.
According to Achabu, he cried when he saw his prospective salary on the appointment letter.
“When I began submitting my applications, I would wake up at 5 am to check my emails. When I received the appointment letter and saw the salary, I started crying. I’m even teary now because I had never seen it before.
“My salary in Ghana was GHc1,600, and the salary they quoted was also the same but in dollars. That was just the base salary, so it increases depending on your experience and teaching level,” he added.
