The dismissal letter, dated November 29, 2022, and signed by Dr Eric Nkansah, Director General of the GES, requested that the parents make sure their children turn over all school property to the institution before finishing their education.
The GES also admonished the students to use this period as “a major turning point in her life to bring the desired change in her behaviour and attitude towards life.”
It will be recalled that there was a huge public uproar in November 2022 after a viral video captured 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.
