The Editor in chief of the New Crusading Guide, Mr. Abdul Malik Kwaku Baako Junior has slammed the President of the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), Angel Carbonu over the Achimota School and the Rastafarian student melee.
Angel Carbonu had argued that the Rasta students should not be allowed to be in the schools due to their dreadlocks. He believes that allowing the students to be in the school will only open the floodgate for other students to also wear whatever they want. After the landmark High Court ruling on the case, Mr. Angel Carbonu urged teachers not to be bothered by what students wear to school, but should only teach and leave. His comment has since been condemned by many Ghanaians.
Responding to Mr. Angel Carbonu on the Joy News File, Mr. Kwaku Baako junior expressed his disappointment in the NAGRAT President. According to him, even though he abhors mentioning names of people in his discussions, Mr. Angel Carbonu got it all wrong.
“But the point about floodgates and the rest, it’s a usual sign, I don’t like mentioning names because it looks as if you are taking on a person but he is a public figure and has spoken. He is the president of a respectable association but I think he got it all wrong. I’m disappointed”. He noted.
Mr. Kwaku Baako Junior adds that at sixty-four years, Ghana should not be discussing such issues in court when there are experienced human resources to deal with the subject.
“We ought not to be here at this point dealing with such issues. 64 years of independence, we have the requisite human resource to deal with this issue even before someone decides to go to court. Now we need to come together and work out some regulations for our schools”. He indicated.
He adds that the judgment has been given and the country ought to move on as one. “It is their right to appeal but I will be disappointed if this judgment is reversed. Because it would be a backward movement and we will not be progressing. We have perpetual litigants all over the place. They are entitled to that but instinctively, I would want this matter stopped where it is”. He added.
