Oheneba Nkrabea, one of the two Rastafarian students, who was denied admission into Achimota School, has been granted admission into the school on Thursday, June 3, 2021.
The Human Rights Division of the Accra High Court ordered Achimota School to admit the two Rastafarian students.
Reacting to his admission to the Achimota School, Oheneba Nkrabea expressed excitement with regards to how he was welcomed in a warm and nice manner.
“They received me well. The teachers, students and other staff members were very positive. I appreciate that very much.”Nkrabea said
The father of the Rastafarian student also said, ”The school chaplain approached us and ask that we go to the administration. There, the day students’ girls prefect also approached us. That was when everything changed, she came in warm, introduced herself, and told Oheneba he was going to be her school son and make sure he is comfortable on campus.”
“We passed by some dormitories where the students were screaming and hailing us. It was assuring because we were a bit apprehensive. Even the students are in support of him.”
Oheneba Nkrabea’s mother also commented, “I just got relieved and felt comfortable that he was safe because we also meet a teacher who has been protective of him since the first day because we met him today who ushered him into the classroom. So far I feel okay with the warm reception we received today.” She added.
The other Rastafarian student, Tyrone Marhguy, is yet to be admitted also.
