“People are going to Mars and we are here wasting time on hair discussion” – Education Minister Dr. Adutwum on Achimota school brouhaha

Ghana’s Education Minister Dr Yaw Osei Aduwtum has stated categorically that Ghanaians are wasting precious time discussing hair-related issues following the refusal of the Achimota School to admit students with dreadlocks.

TV3’s Parliamentary Correspondent, Komla Kluste reported on Wednesday March 24 that “So, I approached the Minister of Education yesterday for his opinion on the Achimota Rastafarian matter, he declined an interview saying that ‘when people are busy researching how to go to Mars, we are wasting precious time on hair discussion.”

Meanwhile, the Executive Director of the National Commission on Culture, Janet Edna Nyame has asked the Rastafarian family whose children were denied admission to the Achimota School to submit themselves to the rules and regulations of the institution.

However, both the Rastafarian students including Tyrone Marghuy insist that they would rather forfeit their admission than cut the dreadlocks they have kept for all these years.
