The Ghana Education Service (GES) after it told the headmaster of Ghana Senior High School, Seibu Fuseini to step aside for investigations into toilet cubicles turned dormitories for students has called him to return to duty.
His call to office comes after the management of the Ghana Education Service (GES) thoroughly reviewed the reports of the investigative committee and noted findings and recommendations for the unfortunate incident.
Mr Seibu with the Senior housemaster of the Ghana Senior High School were asked to step aside to allow further probe into the matter but the GES is yet to communicate to the public about the reinstatement of the housemaster.
Their dismissal follows a viral video being circulated on various social media platforms showing some Free Senior High School (Free SHS) students of the Ghana Senior High School in Tamale using toilet cubicles as dormitories.
Describing the situation as unfortunate, the management of the Ghana Education Service (GES) said the school declared 1,790 vacancies during the 2022 academic year computerised school selection and placement process.
“Only 1,467 students have enrolled. The school is expected to have excess capacity to even house extra 300 students. It is thus unacceptable to have students sleep in such a place,” the Service in charge of Education said in the release.
In a related development, the Ghana Education Service on the recommendation of an investigative committee report has called Kenneth Agbomadze, the headmaster of Fijai Senior High School to return to duty after he was sacked for charging unapproved fees.
He was asked to return to duty after stakeholders of Fijai Senior High School including the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) told the investigative committee the fees described by the GES as illegal were agreed to be paid by parents.
Mr Kenneth Agbomadze in a letter dated Monday, May 8, 2023, was warned about the primary responsibility to ensure strict compliance with all directives, rules and regulations of the Ghana Education Service (GES).
“Ghana Education Service (GES) will not hesitate to take severe sanctions against any officer who flouts such directives and rules in the future,” the Agency under the auspices of the Ministry of Education said in the letter to Agbomadze.
