Eight Students Dismissed From Chiana SHS For Insulting President Akufo-Addo

The Ghana Education Service has taken action against eight students from the Chiana Senior High School in the Upper East Region, dismissing them due to accusations of insulting President Akufo-Addo. The students were previously suspended before the dismissal.

According to the Ghana Education Service, their investigation into the incident revealed that the students used inappropriate language against the President. The GES has deemed their actions as "very undesirable" and in violation of the standard conduct expected from students in the Ghanaian educational system.

The Ghana Education Service has previously issued an apology to President Akufo-Addo regarding the statements made by the students. They have identified the students as second-year students of Chiana Senior High School in the Kassena Nankana West District. The GES has expressed its deepest apologies on behalf of the students and school to the President and the public in a statement issued on November 14, 2022.

ADVICE TO THE YOUTH: One moral lesson that can be drawn from this incident is the importance of respect and civility in our speech and actions, especially when it comes to those in positions of authority. It is important for students, and all individuals, to understand that our words and actions have consequences and that it is essential to think before we speak or act to avoid causing harm or offense. Additionally, It is also important for us to remember that freedom of speech does not mean freedom of consequence for any kind of speech, and we should be mindful of the impact of our words on others.
