Journalists have petitioned the Ghana Education Service (GES) and the Ministry of Education (MoE) to sack or demote the Achimota School Headmistress from post for rejecting a directive to admit two students it denied admission.
The call for her dismissal comes after the Human Rights Division of the Accra High Court Monday directed the Achimota High School to admit the rasta students it denied admission on March 19 amid the nature of their hairstyle.
The court presided over by Justice Gifty Agyei Addo ruled that the fundamental human rights of two Rastafarian students cannot be limited by the rules in question.
“Please sack or demote the Achimota School Headmistress. If you won’t, then surcharge her for the legal fees of the Attorney General’s Department,” Umaru Sanda Amadu, a professional journalist with Citi FM stated.
This the Cowboy journalist said is because the Headmistress blatantly and arrogantly defied an instruction to admit the students, an action which led GES, and the school to be dragged to court and embarrassed like a village thief.
“Please make her pay for the rotten eggs on your face and use her as an example now that you have the court on your side,” the host of Eyewitness on Citi 93.7 FM stated in a post sighted by EducationWeb.com.gh.
The Alliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability (ASEPA) similarly has petitioned the Ghana Education Service (GES) to dismiss the Achimota School Headmistress for the same charge journalist have raised against her.
