The Activist Forum for the New Ghana applauds the Accra Metro GES Boss for the immediate action and manner in which he has handled the case of students who were sacked by their headmistress from their classroom for non payment of monies levied them towards the burial of their French Teacher who passed away some weeks ago.
It is on acceptable for over 240 students to pay five (5) Ghana Cedis each from Kaneshie Bishop “2” JHS and also 240 students to pay two (2) Ghana Cedis each from Kaneshie Bishop “1” Junior High School towards the funeral arrangements.
This is a confirmation and testament to the fact that Ghanaians can waste resources on funerals. Why not on those who are alive, need healthcare and education, shelter and food?
Activist Forum's investigations has revealed that it was a tremendous efforts made by the Director of Basic Education, Mr. Adu by instructing the Accra Metro Boss to handled this case with great humane and professionalism.
According to the Accra Metro GES Boss who said on Joy and Aempa Fm Stations yesterday stressing that various form of actions will be taken by the committee that will be set up to today to look into the matter and ensure that justice prevails.
This call for action is a lesson to all those who think that they can manipulate the law to suit their own agenda.
The Group also salutes the great efforts made by some media houses such as Joy Fm, Choice Fm and Asempa Fm for their quest to ensure that development gets to the door steps of every Ghanaian.
Indeed, the Change which President Mills is calling for has struck, and Ghanaians are called upon to be part of the developmental process. It is of no doubt that Ghanaians are beginning to realize that their part of the process. The manner in which some concerned citizens attached overwhelming importance to the children who were sacked from their schools is very commendable which must be emulated by all.
Activist forum therefore calls on Ghanaians to be up to the task of helping to develop our nation. We should be proud as Ghanaians that we have the solution to our problems and are capable of managing our own affairs.
