Achimota school Rastafarian saga: NPP Communicator commends authorities for appeal
Asare Bediako Seth of the New Patriotic Party has said if care is not taken bad precedence will be Set in the school.
Bono Regional Communications Officer for the NPP, Asare Bediako Seth has called it is a step in the right direction for the Authority of Achomota School to appeal in the case concerning the Rastafarian students, Tyron Marhguy and Ohene Nkrabea.
Speaking on Ark in the Morning monitored by Soireenews, Asare Bediako Seth said if care is not taken bad precedence will be set in the school.
In a notice of appeal sighted by Soiree News, the Attorney General said the High court judge, Justice Gifty Agyei Addo, who had earlier ruled that the two Rastafarian boys, Tyrone Marhguy and Ohene Nkrabea be admitted to the school with their dreadlocks.
According to the AG, the request by the school for the boys to cut their hair before being admitted was not a violation of their rights to education, as the judge averred.
The AG’s office said the trial judge also failed to appreciate the effect of placing the needed weight on the rules and regulations of Achimota School, which borders on the accepted hairstyles of students.
A member of the NDC Communication team in the Bono Region Bright Apraku was also not happy about the decision of the school
