No school under GES can be sued— Attorney-General replies Achimota Rastafarian
The Attorney-General, Ghana Education Service (GES), and the Ministry of Education have filed a response in the case involving Master Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea, a Rastafarian student who was denied admission by Achimota School.
When the case was called on Thursday, April 22, 2021, Madam Stella Badu, a Chief State Attorney, told the Human Rights Division of the Accra High Court, presided over by Justice Gifty Agyei Addo, that schools under GES could not be sued.
She said because Achimota School was under GES, the Board of the School did not file a response to the suit, hence A-G’s representation.
The Court, however, ordered that, the Board of the school file their reply within four days from today after being served Court’s proceedings for today.
It also served notice for the parties to file their responses to the substantive matter within seven days instead of 21 days to expedite action on the matter.
The case has been adjourned to April 30, 2021.
