I Don't Understand The Interest Of The Attorney General In This Matter - Alhassan Suhuyini

The Attorney General's office, in collaboration with Achimota School, has appealed against the ruling of the Human Rights Court compelling the authorities of Achimota School to admit the Rastafarians students.

Reacting to the appeal by the Attorney General and Achimota School, the Member of Parliament for Tamale North Constituency, Alhassan Sayibu Suhuyini, has indicated that he doesn't understand the interest of the Attorney General in the Rastafarians issues since there are many anomalies in the educational sector which the Attorney General could have looked into instead.

Alhassan Sayibu Suhuyini made this statement on 'GH TODAY' on GHONE television when he questioned the involvement of the Attorney General in the Achimota versus the Rastafarian student's case.

According to Alhassan Suhuyini, he doesn't have a problem with Achimota School appealing against the ruling of the High Court even though he finds it unnecessary, but his problem is with the interest of the Attorney General in the case.

He indicated that the Attorney General of the Republic of Ghana, whose duty is to prosecute cases on behalf of Ghanaians, especially the vulnerable in the society, and these children are vulnerable. So, why is the Attorney General trying to prosecute them instead?

Alhassan Suhuyini lamented that these Rastafarian kids belong to a minority group in Ghana, but the interest of an Attorney General is not on how much such people will get quality education, but how they will be denied admission.

"I don't understand the interest of the Attorney General in this matter. We simply play too much in this country. So, with all the problems that we are facing in education in this country, this is the matter that the Attorney General has time to prosecute?"

He said that the Attorney General appealing against the ruling of the High Court is a waste of public time and resources because the students have been admitted, and we've not been told that as a result of their admission, indiscipline has become an issue in the school.

Alhassan Suhuyini added that these Rastafarian students issue is being influenced by our prejudice against Rastafarians in this country.
