Member of Parliament (MP) for Ningo Prampram, Samuel Nartey George wonders why Ghana at this age and time still allows her judges in the courts to wear “horse wigs” but, schools can’t accept students with dreadlocks, which is natural.

His comments came following the rejection of students with dreadlocks by the Achimota school in Accra on Friday, March 19, 2021.According to the MP, Ghanaian system still holds persons dressed in Western style than their colleagues in African style.

“This Country we call Ghana eh. Hmmmm. We still have Judges and lawyers wearing silly horse wigs looking like colonial caricature relics and that’s cool but we think it is wrong for someone to carry dreadlocks?”, he asked.

“We still think if you are not wearing a suit and tie, you are improperly dressed as an MP. What mentality is this kra?”, he further asked.

Many individuals including organizations have so far taken on the school management for the decision not to accept the son of Ras Aswad Nkrabeah into the school.

The student in an interview with journalists pleaded with the management of the school to look beyond his appearance and appreciate what he has in his brain.

He obtained aggregate 6 to study science at the school by computer placement system.

Meanwhile, a report on The Showbiz newspaper today says “GES directs Achimota School to admit Rastafarians”, indicating that the “Rasta student” will be accepted as he wished.
