A group calling itself, Crusaders have called on the government to as a matter of urgency to reinstate the Headmaster of Tempane Senior High School in the Tempane District of the Upper East Region over Joshua Akamba’s ‘inciting’ video.
A viral video capturing Mr Akamba inciting some students at Tempane High School, against the president has generated mixed reactions. The video saw the politician describe as despicable what he saw at the school. He was slammed and asked to apologise but he refused saying: “Did you see the skins of the students? It’s such a shame.
Mr Akamba was heard telling students of Tempane Senior High School in the Upper East Region that president Nana Akufo-Addo and the government must be blamed for bed bug attacks in their school.
He made the students show their bedbug bite scars to the cameras, promising them their headache will be over by 2020 if they vote out the NPP.
He was also seen encouraging the students to reject President Akufo-Addo as he is the cause of their predicament.
Even animals are not treated the way these students are being treated. Some of the students were chasing me and crying asking for just GHC1 to buy food.
As a result, the headmaster of the Tempane SHS, Dominic Ndegu Amolale has been suspended by the Ghana Education Service (GES).
Ndegu Amolale received his suspension letter Saturday morning with an instruction to handover the management of the school to Upper East Regional GES Director to allow for investigations into the incident.
But in a statement issued by the group and copied to GhanaWeb indicated “We are not happy as crusaders and we wish to register our displeasure since we can say the action of government is politically motivated and the headmaster has been unjustly treated”.
The statement revealed, “We wish to also state on record that, as at the time of Captain Akamba’s interaction with the students, the headmaster was on an official assignment somewhere, so the question we ask ourselves is how could he have served as a watch dog over the students”.
The statement said “There were similar instances of what happened at Tempani SHS involving some leading members of the NPP ,then in opposition durning the John Mahama led administration yet we never saw this harsh suspension. Was Dr Bawumia campaigning in a farm or forest?”
The Crusaders are therefore calling on the government to reinstate the Headmaster immediately and they stated that the Headmaster has done nothing wrong.
