The Member of Parliament for Builsa South constituency. Dr. Clement Apaak has added his voice to the many Ghanaians condemning the denial of students with dreadlocks admissions into school. He suggested that we should be looking at the brains of the students and not what type of hair they are wearing.

The Builsa MP made this suggestion as a panelist on ‘Good Morning Ghana’ on Metro television this morning when he was asked to give his opinion on the brouhaha concerning students with dreadlocks who are being denied admissions into schools in Ghana.

“The kids have done well; they may be wearing dreadlocks but they have passed and have been posted to the grade ‘A’ schools. And yet they cannot take their place in the grade ‘A’ schools because of the nature of the hair they have which have been informed by their religion and their way of life.

You can argue that that is not fair and the parents are arguing that it is not fair. We should be looking at the brains of the students and not what type of hair they are wearing.

Am sure you’ve seen the pictures and the argument of how the same school has admitted people from different background Caucasian, people with long hairs and dreadlocks. Why then should you say that your indigenous people with similar hairstyle shouldn’t be allowed? “– he said
