H. Kwasi Prempeh has argued that the court battle of Achimota senior high school and the Rastafarian students who were asked to cut their hair before being admitted into the school was absolutely needless and the rightful things could have been done to save the country.
According to him, the rulling of Accra High Court ordering Achimota senior high school management to admit the Rastafarian students is a way up of Ghana catching up with its other African peers in matter of the educational rights of Rastafarian students in a constitutional order such as that of the Ghanaians'.
He also applauded the family of the Rastafarian students for not giving up on what was good but stood on their feet to fight for the right thing to be done. He said better late than never but the court battles triggered by the intransigence of Achimota and it's establishment allies could have been prevented. According to him, it was absolutely needless but Ghana must not slack. We must move forward.
"Ghana finally catches up with its African peers in this matter of the educational rights of Rastafarian students in a constitutional order such as ours. Better late than never. This court battle, triggered by the intransigence of Achimota and its Establishment allies, was otherwise totally needless. Forward ever, backward never!" He said
