One of the two dreadlock-wearing boys denied admission into Achimota School, Oheneba Nkrabea, has finally been admitted into the institution on Thursday, June 3, 2021.
It follows an Accra High Court ruling that ordered the management of the school to allow the students to enroll.
Citi News‘ visit to the school on Thursday, June 3, 2021, confirmed that the student has reported to the school and completed the admission process.
The parents of the boy arrived at the school early this morning and submitted the completed admission forms to the school authorities.
Oheneba has begun academic work as he has been assigned a class.
“The process was wonderful. The school was receptive to him. The teachers and other staff members were very positive, and so he is in class right now. I appreciate that very much”, Oheneba’s father, Raswad Nkrabea said.
The student’s admission is however pending the decision by the school’s Governing Board to appeal the judgment of the High Court.
Meanwhile, the other rastafarian boy, Tyrone Marhguy, is yet to go through the admission process.
According to Citi News‘ Nii Armah Armah who has been following the story, Tyrone Marhguy will go through the admission process tomorrow.
