The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) has called on the Ghana Education Service (GES) to reinstate the headmaster of Ghana Senior High School (GHANASCO) in Tamale, Douglas Haruna Yakubu. This follows the interdiction of Mr. Yakubu and the senior housemaster of the school for further investigation into a viral video showing students using washroom cubicles as dormitories.

According to the General Secretary of GNAT, Thomas Musah, the GES breached professional rules by issuing a statement interdicting the headmaster and putting him in the public for ridicule. He urged the GES to do the right thing by reinstating Mr. Yakubu and investigating the matter thoroughly.

Mr. Musah also expressed concerns about the delay in government funding, including the capitation grant, which has not been paid for over two years, and the government’s interventions for SHSs, which have been in arrears for over three years.

“Capitation grant has not been paid for over two years now, and the government’s interventions for SHSs have been in arrears for over 3 years. What are we talking about,” Mr. Musah lamented in an interview with Citi FM.

Meanwhile, the interdicted headmaster has denied the allegations, claiming the story was staged to tarnish the school’s image. However, journalist Prince Kwame Tamakloe, who broke the story, stands by his report.

The GNAT’s call for the reinstatement of Mr. Yakubu highlights the need for due process to be followed in addressing such matters. It is also a wake-up call for the government to address the funding challenges facing SHSs in the country. The future of our students depends on the availability of adequate resources to support their education.
