Father of Ohenaba Kwaku Nkrabea, one of the Rastafarian students who has just been admitted into Achimota School has hinted of his plans to join the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) of the School.
Ras Aswad Nkrabea in an interview on Joy Prime’s Prime Morning on Thursday, June 3, said since his child has been admitted into the School, he automatically becomes a member of the Association.
The PTA of Achimota School in April released a statement declaring their support for the Management of the School when they refused to admit the dreadlocked students.
According to them, the hairstyle of the pupils; Ohenaba Nkrabea and Tyrone Marghuy was against the school’s prescribed low cut which is to promote uniformity and discipline.
In view of this, Mr Nkrabea hoped the leadership and members of the Association will warmly welcome him just as the students cheerfully received his ward.
Mr Nkrabea further stated that in his bid to see reforms in the school, he will run for a position in the PTA and have his voice heard in a more significant manner.
“If there is a position to fill to make the school better, then yes, I will not hesitate to do that,” he told host Daniel Dadzie.
Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea was today finally admitted to join his colleagues in the classroom.
This has been made possible due to a high Court Judgment and an intervention by the Attorney General, Godfred Yeboah Dame.
Now, Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea’s dream of attending the Massachusetts Institute of Technology later, to further his goal to work in Silicon Valley, starts today, from Achimota School.
Although there is a legal battle still ongoing, Oheneba’s mother, Manaa Myers, told JoyNews that they were met with loud cheers by students and a warm reception by officials of the School.
