Ejisuman SHS Board denies damning media reports

132

The Governing Board of Ejisuman Senior High School (SHS) has profusely denied that teachers in the school are sexually involved with the students.

It said this was unfounded – completely false and asked anybody with a shred of evidence to come forward.

The Reverend Father Dr. Paul Attah Nsiah, the Chairman, told a press conference held in Ejisu that no such thing was happening in the school and that they were deeply upset by the media report.

He added that claims that it had also dismissed three final year students and prevented them from registering for this year’s West Africa Senior High School Examination (WASSCE) was inaccurate.

According to them, is one Nana Kofi Poku, the Nkosohene of Ejisu who is behind these series of allegations in order to undermine the image of the school, hence the public should disregard these allegations.

It was reported that Teachers of Ejisuman SHS are having sexual affairs with the female students of the school and and also three ESEC students dismissed indefinitely alleged that they were forbidden from registering for the WASSCE examination.

But addressing the media at a press Conference on Wednesday, 24 January, 2018, the Board Chairman of the school, Rev. Fr. Dr. Paul Attah – Nsiah stated that there was truth in the publication after a broad consultation with the district education directorate and the school authorities.

” The Teachers have vehemently denied any allegation of sexual misconduct with a student. Let anyone with evidence come up and give it” He said.

To this end, the Board are appealing to the National Security and the Ministry of Gender Children and Social protection to come into the matter.

“the Chronicle Newspaper’s front headline report yesterday with the caption ‘Tutors ‘feast’ on Ejisu SHS Girls’ was truly distressing and disheartening. Another episode that appeared yesterday, 23, 2018 at the ultimatefmonline. com with the caption ‘I had sex with my teachers to pay my 100 ghana cedis fees – Ejisuman SHS student’ without any story is also a serious issue to let go without serious investigation” Father Attah – Nsiah fumed.

” We are therefore passionately petitioning the National Security and the Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection and any other Human Right Groups to come in to make sure that these serious allegations are properly investigated” he appealed.

The three, he said, had been suspended and that this was done in accordance with due process.

He indicated that two of the students had been registered for the examination but their other colleague, who was owing the school GH?2,672.00 in fees could not and the decision came from her parents.

He accused the Nkosuohene of Ejisu, Nana Kofi Poku, of waging a campaign to damage the image of the school.

He claimed that the sub chief was peeved at the rejection of his nomination to serve on the governing board and doing everything to give the SHS a bad name.

The Rev Fr Dr. Nsiah said, the Nkosuohene, had never forgiven the school and that they had never known peace since he was denied the opportunity to serve on the board – meddling in the running of the SHS and inciting students to break school rules and regulations.

He cited an instance where the sub chief reported a teacher to the Ejisu police for seizing a phone from a student because he did not understand why students should not be allowed to carry phones and iPads to the school.

The other time, he was in the school to invoke curses on the disciplinary committee for recommending that a boarding student, should be made a day student for attempting to physically assault a housemistress.

Nana Poku, however, denied any wrongdoing and said as Nkosuohene (development chief), he wanted that best for the Ejisu Traditional Area.
