School heads in the Upper East Region have made a passionate appeal to president Nana Akufo-Addo followings insults hurled at him by some five Senior High School (SHS) students.
The video captures the five girls taking turns staring into the camera to insult the president in Twi. The video went viral because of some of the vulgar words used against the president and the boldness with which the girls spoke.
The young girls have been identified as second year students of Chianna Senior High School (SHS) in the Kassena-Nankana West District of the Upper East Region.
They did not point out exactly why they were descending on the president but mentioned variously that they were suffering on campus.

According to a report by GhanaWeb, the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS) in the Upper East Region has issued a statement pleading with the president to take heart and forgive the "naughty students."
"The entire Upper East Regional CHASS and indeed the National Executive Council of CHASS wish to render an unqualified apology to His Excellency the President of the Republic, Management of the Ghana Education Service and the Ghanaian public for the rather disgusting utterances by these naughty students," the report quoted portions of the statement.
The statement was co-signed by chair of CHASS Richard Akumbas Ayabilla and secretary Bukari Abdulai.
Already, the Ghana Education Service (GES) has also condemned the video.
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."
