Mr. President EAI Appreciate Your Rapid Intervention Concerning The 8 Chiana Students’ Dismissal – William Boadi, EAI
Dear all, Educate Africa Institute (EAI) is delighted to announce that the President of Ghana H. E. Nana Akufo-Addo has directed the Ghana Education Service through the sector minister Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum to repeal the dismissal against those 8 Chiana students who trespassed GES disciplinary measures.
The (8) female students of Chiana SHS in the Kassena Nankana West District of the Upper East Region were captured in a video that went viral insulting President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has been dismissed by the Ghana Education Service (GES). This action was taken through sweeping scrutiny by the GES committee.
The reason for their dismissal was due to a posture that is “very undesirable, and contrary to the acceptable standards of the conduct generally required of any student in the educational system of Ghana.”
And yesterday the 8 students asked for forgiveness and it has yielded good news per the directives from the president.
Indeed, we have a liable father as a president. Last 3 years 2020, the same thing happened and he pardoned the schoolboy and awarded him a scholarship to further his education overseas.
This doesn’t warrant us to repeat or to be deviants. We are in a civilized country and one has no right to attack verbally or in any form. When there is a national issue and you want to contribute apply your conscience like how EAI does it always. We must be mindful of our actions because the tree can fall on us in the absence of mercy. Better still, if you have nothing decent to share keep mute and stay in the country or vanish.
EAI is advising the 8 students to volunteer as ambassadors for good behavior. And, to revive discipline in schools, we believe that GES must lift the ban on canning, be behind teachers, and make our education system more attractive and impactful. Most of the students are frustrated due to the same style of teaching and learning over decades. Character training should be improved through our African norms. Our way of life is different from the west. The courtesy of boys’ and girls’ teachings must be modified. The NCCE must wake up and deliver. Society is changing and we can’t do it without opinion leaders, parents, and all. Let’s come together and build Ghana.
