Sue Ghana Immigration Service If You Are Disqualified For Having A Flat Foot - Lawyer Yaw Dankwa

The Public Relations Officer for Ghana Immigration Service in mentioning their requirements for applicants said that applicants with flat feet will be disqualified.

The normal human foot usually has an arch under the inner part of the foot when one is standing. However some people have a very low arch and others have none, making their feet flat on the ground.

With this requirement, a renowned lawyer and lecturer at the Central University, Lawyer Yaw Dankwa responded that this is an act of discrimination and has no law backing it. He said that the requirement has no medical basis backing it. He mentioned that we work with knowledge and not necessarily human features.

He said that everything is governed by law therefore if anybody is disqualified on such a basis, that person must sue the Ghana Immigration Service in court for them to account for their actions.

Again, a general medical practitioner of the Tema General Hospital, Dr Kofi Blankson responded that people with flat feet are often people with sickle cell traits. He added that persons with flat feet are unable to stand for long hours since there is little to no aeration under the feet to strengthen them.
