THE NKOSUOHENE of Ejisu Traditional Area, Nana Kofi Poku, has been banned from entering the Ejisuman Senior High School (SHS) to interfere with the running of the school.
The ban of the chief is part of several recommendations that a committee that the Ghana Education Service (GES) had constituted to investigate the alleged free for all sex scandal between teachers and students of the school.
The committee, which was chaired by Mr. Patrick Debrah Boateng, accused the chief for orchestrating a video recording involving a female student and an officer of the school.
Some female students of Ejisuman SHS had accused nine male teachers of soliciting sex from them (students), a wild allegation which forced the GES to call for investigations.
In the committee’s 38-page report, it was stated that eight out of the 9 accused male teachers of Ejisuman SHS were found guilty of inappropriate sexual advances on the students.
The committee has therefore recommended that the eight teachers, even though they did not have penetrative sex with the students, should be made to face GES disciplinary action.
They also suggested that henceforth the school authorities should appropriately deal with reports of sex proposals, adding that the Nkosuohene of Ejisu should not be allowed to interfere with matters in the school.
The committee’s recommendations also include that female students should report sex proposals by their teachers and male students to the Guidance and Counseling Unit of the school, among others.
