Achimota-Rastafarians saga: We will leave Ghana – Rastafarian’s father threatens

The father of one of the first-year Rastafarian students denied admission into Achimota Senior High School says he’s considering relocation to another African country.

The father of the student, Ras Aswad Nkrabea, a Jamaican national said he neutralized to become a Ghanaian following the President’s call on Africans in the diaspora to return home during the Year of Return campaign.

He said the action will be taken if President Akufo-Addo refuses to intervene and order the headmistress of the school to admit his child and the other student.

“I’m calling on the President to intervene because he went all over the world and inviting us to come here to Ghana. And, say that Ghana is your home. You are welcome and if this is the welcome we are getting,” he said.

Speaking with Metro TV’s Bright Amaning on News Beat on Tuesday afternoon, Aswad Nkrabea said if President Akufo-Addo refuses to intervene he will campaign vigorously against the government and ensure the diaspora community doesn’t heed the president’s call and relocate to Ghana.

“I’m getting ready to call on the diaspora community to not honor the Year of Return, Beyond the Return call and stay where they are,” he fumed.

Ras Nkrabea also opined that the Achimota Senior High School claim it is refusing to enroll his son and the other student due to their dreadlocks is false.

He believes the second cycle institution is Christian-biased and detests Rastafarianism hence its implementation of anti-Rastafarian policies.
