The Executive Secretary of the Africa Education Watch, Kofi Asare, has accused the Ghana Education Service (GES) of the legitimate fight that followed between the Achimota School and the two Rastafarian young men, Tyrone Marhguy and Oheneba Nkrabea.

Mr. Asare demands that if the GES had unquestionably practiced its forces under the constitution, the issue would not have wound up in court.

The GES had requested the school to concede the young men, yet the school glaringly ignored the mandate, convincing GES to pull out the request.

The school demanded not conceding the young men for declining to cut their dreadlocks as Rastafarians, clarifying that the school rules couldn’t be evaded or forfeited for them.

The young men and their folks were in this manner constrained to sue the school for victimizing them based on their religion to deny them the privilege to training.

Eventually, the school had no real option except to concede them following a request by the High Court.

Talking on Citi FM and Citi TV’s weekend current issues show, The Big Issue, on Saturday, June 5, 2021, Mr. Asare charged the GES to completely practice its oversight job of instructive establishments to stay away from such episodes later on.

“I pin this on GES’s inability to act. Rule 37 of British Education Law clarifies that the heads of senior secondary schools and school the board councils or fundamental schools are liable for dealing with the schools as per rules and rules set up by the Education Service.”

“So the GES had all the order to figure out what ought to have been done in the matter, yet it fizzled and that brought us here.”

Equity Gifty Adjei Addo, the directing appointed authority, couldn’t help contradicting the entries of the Attorney General and conceded every one of the reliefs independently looked for by the troubled understudies with the exception of the alleviation of remuneration on account of Tyrone Marhguy.

As indicated by Justice Addo, it is ridiculous for the Attorney General to have even proposed that the two were not understudies in any case.

Equity Gifty Adjei Addo thusly guided Achimota School to concede the two Rastafarian understudies.

Following the court’s choice, Achimota School through its board reported that it will offer the choice.
