Minority (NDC) MPs in Parliament on the E-Levy

Members of the Minority caucus in Parliament

The Minority in Parliament has said that the decision by the Ghana Education Service (GES) to dismiss the eight female students of the Chiana SHS in the Kassena Nankana West District for insulting President Akufo-Addo is harsh.

“It is therefore, regrettable to learn of the decision of the Ghana Education Service (GES) to dismiss the eight female students of the Chiana SHS in the Kassena Nankana West District of the Upper East region for insulting the President of the Republic some months ago,” a statement released by the Minority said.

According to the Minority, although they are against the misconduct of the eight students, and condemns same, the decision by the GES to dismiss them is harsh and retrogressive.

“We believe the eight students like every other Ghanaian child deserve to be in school in line with Article 25 of the 1992 Constitution of Ghana and also Goal(4) of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.”

The Minority is, however, calling on GES to review its decision and to ensure that the education of the victims are not truncated in this manner.

“We are also by this statement, urging the GES to proffer an alternative but corrective punishment to the eight students,” the statement continued.

“In conclusion, the Minority wishes to appeal to His Excellency the President, to use his good offices to pardon these students as he did in 2020 when a group of some students misconducted themselves towards him.”

We’re sorry – students
