The saga had been going on since March 19, 2021, during which the two students have not been able to start academic work with their colleagues.

They were placed at the school through the Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) having satisfied the entry requirement by creditably passing their Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

Ghana Education Student initially directed Achimota School to admit the students but later backtracked after pushback from the school’s stakeholders and further engagements.
