GNAT demands immediate reinstatement of GHANASCO headmaster.
The Ghana Education Service (GES) must immediately reinstate the headmaster of the Ghana Senior High School (GHANASCO) in Tamale, according to the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT).
The GES ordered the school’s senior housemaster and headmaster, Douglas Haruna Yakubu, to leave the scene so that additional inquiries could be made into a widely circulated video in which some pupils from GHANASCO were seen sleeping in restroom cubicles.
The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) demands that the Ghana Education Service (GES) promptly rehire the headmaster of the Ghana Senior High School (GHANASCO) in Tamale.
The senior housemaster and headmaster of the school, Douglas Haruna Yakubu, was told to leave the area by the GES so that more investigations could be conducted on a widely shared video in which some students from GHANASCO were seen sleeping in lavatory cubicles.
The investigations were to be led by the Northern Region Director of Education, who was to submit a report in two weeks.
The Northern Region Minister, Alhaji Alhassan Shaibu, and other former students conducted an investigation of the school, which revealed that the reports were untrue.
The general secretary of GNAT stated that before punishing the headmaster and the housemaster, GES should have exercised prudence because it lacked a complete understanding of the circumstances.
Douglas Haruna Yakubu, the headmaster of GHANASCO, claimed that the story was created to harm the school’s reputation. The story’s author, journalist Prince Kwame Tamakloe, argues that it was not staged.
