8 Students Dismissed For Insulting Akufo-Addo

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has dismissed eight students from the Chiana Senior High School in the Kassena Nankana West District following investigations into misconduct on their part.

On November 13, 2022, a video of some female students from the school insulting President Akufo-Addo surfaced on social media.

At the time, the GES said the management of the school had launched investigations into the incident noting their action flies in the face of moral and educational principles.

“Management of the School began investigations to unravel the circumstances surrounding such unfortunate utterances and gestures”, the GES said in a statement dated November 14.

In a letter from the Director-General of the GES, DR Eric Nkansah, following the conclusion of the investigations, the GES dismissed the eight second-year students from the school.

The Director of education think tank Africa Education Watch (EDUWATCH), Kofi Asare, described the action of the students as “despicable” and threw weight behind the sanction.

“Our schools are for learning; learning not just academics but also morals. Rules and regulations are in place and must be enforced to ensure teachers and school managers who have the responsibility of manning these schools handle it effectively for quality outcome and so when such rules are broken by students, the sanctions must be applied so that we don’t create a situation where our schools become a den of indiscipline”, he said in an interview monitored by opemsuo.com

He noted, “I’m happy that the students have been sanctioned by the school’s authority and the sanctions upheld by the Ghana Education Service”.
