The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) is demanding the immediate reinstatement of the headmaster of the Ghana Senior High School (GHANASCO) in Tamale by the Ghana Education Service (GES).
The headmaster, Douglas Haruna Yakubu and the school’s senior housemaster were directed by the GES to step aside to allow for further investigations into a viral video where some of the students of GHANASCO were seen using washroom cubicles as dormitories.
Speaking on Vision1 FM on the matter, the General Secretary of GNAT, Thomas Musah said the GES breached the rules of engagement regarding the profession, hence the call for the reinstatement of the headmaster.
He also complained about the delay in the release of capitation grant by the government for over two years for the effective running of schools in the country.
GHANASCO head Douglas Haruna Yakubu said the story was staged to tarnish the image of the school but Prince Kwame Tamakloe, the journalist behind the story insists the story was not staged
