One of the two Rastafarian students at the centre of the Achimota School admission brouhaha, Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea, has filed a motion asking the Accra High Court to order the school to admit him pending the final determination of the case.
In the ex-parte motion, Oheneba Nkrabea, through his father argued that with academic work already in session, he stands to be disadvantaged if he continues to stay at home waiting for the final decision of the court on the substantive case.
He is therefore praying the court to force Achimota School to allow him to attend classes, while the case lingers. Oheneba Nkrabea earlier dragged Achimota School, the Board of Governors of the School, the Ghana Education Service, Ministry of Education and the Attorney General to court, praying the Human Rights Division of the High Court to compel Achimota School to admit him into the school for the purposes of his education.
He is also asking the court to stop the school from ever discriminating against him on the basis of his religion and or creed.
Oheneba Nkrabea’s suit is the second after one filed by Tyron Marhguy, the other Rastafarian who was denied admission to the school.
The court is expected to sit on the case on April 12, 2021.
