John Kwamina Ankomah Simpson
The Ghana Education Service (GES) has asked the headmaster of Mfantsipim Senior High School in Cape Coast, John Kwamina Ankomah Simpson, to immediately step aside.
In a letter signed by the Director General of GES, Jacob A M Kor, dated December 22, 2015, the decision was taken as a result of the collection of illegal fees from students of the school.
“As a result of the collection of illegal fees from students of Mfantsipim School, you are directed to immediately step aside from responsibilities as the Headmaster of the school, pending further investigations into the illegal collection,” the letter stated in part.
The Central Regional Director of Education, Bartholomew Ofori, has been directed to have overnight responsibility for the school.
