This comes after the school is reported to have rejected the admission of students with dreadlocks.
Prof Opoku-Amankwa told the Daily Graphic that “So you cannot say that you will not admit someone on the basis of the person’s religious beliefs and so we have asked the head to allow the children to be in school.”
Scores of Ghanaians launched a defense for the two young dreadlocks students who were denied admission at Achimota High School.
A former Executive Director of the Danquah Institute has said the refusal of the Achimota School authorities to admit a students with dreadlocks amounts to perverse backwardness.
He has therefore commended the GES for directing the school authorities to admit the students.
In a tweet, the leading member of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) said “This day and age, a school in Africa will not admit a boy because he is a Rastafarian and wears his hair in that natural form. Call it perverse backwardness. Thank you, GES!”
