Whilst the Achimota School and Rastafarian brouhaha continue to trend, a similar one involving a first-year student who just got rejected by Osei Kyeretwie Senior High School (OKESS) has grabbed attention too.
The 19-year old first-year student who is also a Rastafarian has been denied admission at OKESS in the Ashanti Region. The student, Selasi Yankee says he’s ready to quit his education if the school doesn’t admit him.
Having obtained aggregate 15 and placed at OKESS by Ghana Education Service (GES) computer placement system, the young man says he’s highly disappointed that the school insists their rules and regulations do not permit dreadlocks on campus.
Speaking on Akoma FM, Selasi Yankee disclosed that he will rather choose to keep his dreadlocks over the school when it comes down for him to choose between cutting his locks before he’s admitted into the school.
