The Progressive Old Students Association of the Akropong School for the Blind, has added its voice to calls for the removal of the Headmistress of the School for alleged misconduct.

Students of the Akropong School for the Blind embarked on a demonstration on May 14 to demand the removal of Madam Mahela Narh.

The students said the headmistress has been abusing them and diverting items donated to the school to some high profile persons with the Ghana Education service.

Secretary of the Association, Mr Bismark Amoh at a press conference said they did “not believe that any independent and fair investigations can be done by the School,” and alleged that “receivers of gifts from Madam Narh are those conducting the investigations.”

“We understand that some bank accounts of the school which we alluded to earlier have been closed even though investigations are yet to be concluded,” Mr Amoh said.

Mr Amoh said another issue of great concern was the attempt to transfer some teachers from the school because they had been in the school for more than four years and said, “If the Ghana Education Service wants to transfer teachers who have been in the school for more than four years, they should first transfer the Headmistress who has been in the school for 12 years.”

He alleged that the teachers who were being transferred were only being victimised because they did not side with the Headmistress.

“If the Ghana Education Service want to transfer teachers who have been in the school for more than four years, they should first transfer the headmistress who has been in the school for 12 years,” he said, pointing out that the teachers who were being transferred were only being victimized because they did not side with the headmistress.

A Member of the Progressive Old Students Association, Mr James Aryee- Mensah expressed worry that some media houses have trivialized the issue, asking questions like how can blind students know when someone was misconducting themselves.

The Association has vowed to petition the Economic and Organized Crime Office, the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) and the National Investigation Bureau (Formerly BNI) to get involved in the ongoing investigations of Madam Mahela Narh, Headmistress of the School for alleged wrongdoings.
