Mr Ras Aswad Nkrabeah has threatened to file a lawsuit against the Management of the Accra-based Achimota School for refusing his brilliant begotten son with dreadlocks admission into the school Friday, March 19.
The Authorities of Motown Friday rejected the 2020 BECE school placement enrollment form of two dreadlocked first-year students on basis that they have breached Ghana’s Education Service (GES) code of conduct.
According to Achimota, it goes against the GES code of conduct to admit an individual with dreadlocks as a student, a decisive majority of Ghanaians including stakeholders in the education sector has said was inconsiderate.
But, the father of one of the Free SHS beneficiaries with dreadlocks in a social media post sighted by Educationweb.com.gh has said the action and conduct of the public school is a gross human right violation.
”My son has every right to his culture in so far as such culture do not breach the 1992 Constitution,” Mr Ras Aswad Nkrabeah stated in his post.
According to him, should the Management of Motown not revised their decision on his son’s admission refusal, he (Ras Aswad Nkrabeah) would go-an extra mile to fight for the young Rastafarian rights in the court of law.
