He made this known while addressing a press conference in Accra on Monday, March 22, 2021, in reaction to the Achimota School dreadlocks saga.

Speaking at the press conference, Carbonou said the Achimota School only spelt out the rules and regulations of the school to the parents and the student.

...rules and regulations of an institution are not chosen and picked by individuals, they become standard and ought to be obeyed..,” Carbonou said.

He said the rules and regulations went beyond haircut.

Meanwhile, the Achimota School authorities have rejected the directive by the Ghana Education Service to admit the two Rastafarian students into the institution.

The Headmistress of the school after a crunch meeting on Monday, March 22, 2021, with the regional director of education and the GES stated that the school will not compromise on its school rules to make room for the two students with dreadlocks.
