The Attorney General Must Issue An Advisory Opinion Now - Kwaku Azar Openly Reveals

Astute law professor Kwaku Asare widely known as Kwaku Azar has openly advised the Attorney General to quickly release and advisory opinion to the Ghana Education Service over the denial of some students believed to be in dreadlocks.

He believes this will aid the clarity lost in the handling of these legal right matters in the country and the current situation the educational sector finds itself.

Below is what he said: The Attorney-General should issue an advisory opinion to the GES on whether students can be denied access to public schools on the basis of their religious beliefs, where such beliefs include the wearing of dreadlocks, hijab, rosaries, talisman, etc.

Such legal opinions can provide guidance to our schools and may even forestall costly litigation.

But whether or not this is done, our public bodies also need to appreciate that we live in a constitutional era and they should reexamine many of the rules, procedures, policies, etc. that have been carried over from the prior military and illiberal regimes.
