The Ghana Education Service (GES) has directed the headmaster and the senior housemaster of the Ghana Senior High School (GHANASCO) in Tamale to step aside
This is after a widely circulated video showed students using toilet cubicles as dormitories in the school.
The video has been circulating on social media, causing concern among parents and the public.
According to the GES, the school has excess capacity to even house an extra 300 students, with only 1467 out of 1790 vacancies declared by the school being filled.
The GES in a statement said it was thus unacceptable for students to be sleeping in such a place.
