Asawase MP Mohammed-Mubarak Muntaka has petitioned the Ghana Education Service (GES) over alleged busing of students to voter registration centres in his constituency.
In his letter to the Director-General of Education, the Minority Chief Whip said some 30 form two and three students of Asanteman SHS who were bused to the polling station do not hail from or reside in the community.
Some of the students, he noted were arrested and handed over to the police after they were saved from lynching by angry residents.
Even more worrying for the firebrand MP is the fact that the students were bused by their teacher, one Mr Bismark Fordjour.
“It is, however, important to note that the teacher could not be reached via phone contacts after several attempts,” Mr Muntaka said.
The MP is worried that despite government preventing parents from visiting their wards as restrictions on educational activities are being lifted, the teachers are moving the same students out of school for political interest.
He wants the Director-General of GES, Prof Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa to cause an investigation into the matter.
