The Deputy Minister for Education, in charge of General Education, Rev. John Ntim Fordjour, who announced this explained that although the Ministry and the Ghana Education Service have their regulations on resolving issues, they would however not hinder any other state institutions interested in investigating the issue.

Minister’s Entourage
The Deputy Minister was accompanied by the Deputy Director General of GES, Mr Stephen Kwaku Owusu, the Central Regional Director of Education, Mr Emmanuel Essuman and others
Rev. Ntim Fordjour explained that there was the need for all Ghanaians irrespective of age and location to understand that there are laws governing the behaviour and conduct of every Ghanaian so there was the need for people to be mindful of how they conduct themselves.
The laws must work
He stated that apart from the general laws binding all adults, there were also laws governing juveniles’ behaviour and therefore reminded all residents in the country to watch how they behaved at every point in time.
The Deputy Minister stated that “it is time all students across the country have a paradigm shift on bullying and general indiscipline, having in mind that every action has consequences under the law.
He urged the staff and management of the school to be extra vigilant and ensure high standard of discipline is established on the campus.
