According to some comments from most of the citizens of Ghana, The Achimota Senior High Authority should allow the Rastafarians to study, but some are also saying that, law is law so everyone should obey it whether young or old.
According to Ras Aswad Nkrabeah, his son’s dreadlocks will not cause any harm and should not be a basis to be asserted by the school authorities.
After the incident, the Ghana Education Service (GES) Director General, Professor Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa, directed the Achimota School to admit the two students, but the headmistress of the school say it will only admit the students if they take off their dreadlocks.
This development was after school authorities had a meeting with the Regional Director of Education and the Ghana Education Service (GES) on Monday 22nd March 2021.
In an interview with host of Atinka FM’s AM Drive Kaakyire Ofori Ayim, Tyrone Marguy, one of the students rejected by Achimota School over his dreadlocks said he feels more distressed following the new development by Achimota School.
According to him, he is a brilliant student and he feels disappointed in NAGRAT’s decision.
“ I feel very troubled and it is worrying. Achimota says if they admit us, we will start to influence other kids in different ways, but we only maintain that we should be admitted just like the other students admitted in other schools. We are not coming into the school to fight any rule of the school”, he told Kaakyire Ofori Ayim.
