The Ghana Education Service (GES) has said a viral video of some Senior High School (SHS) female students using vulgar words against president Nana Akufo-Addo is condemnable.
The GES, in a statement signed by Cassandra Twum Ampofo, head of public relations unit, said the service condemns the act "which is against every educational and moral principle in our society."

"We wish to inform the general public that the students in the video have been identified as second year students of Chiana Senior High School in the Kassena Nankano West District," the statement said.
The GES explained that Chiana SHS had begun investigations to unravel the circumstances surrounding such unfortunate utterances and gestures.

"Parents of the students have also been invited to assist in the investigations. Management of GES wishes to extend our sincerest apology to H.E. the President and the general public on behalf of the students and school," the statement said.
The GES also promised that the general public would be made aware of the outcome of the investigations when it is concluded.
The video shows about five girls taking turns staring into the camera to insult the president in Twi.
The female students did not point out exactly why they were descending on the president but mentioned that they were suffering on campus.
There have been numerous allegations in the past that students at some senior high schools were not being fed properly under the school feeding programme. It is however not clear if that compelled the students to insult the president.
