The Ghana Education Service (GES) dismissed the eight female students of Chiana SHS in the Kassena Nankana West District of the Upper East Region for insulting the President.

The dismissal followed a viral video that emerged in November last year in which the students were captured insulting President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo while expressing frustration over the severe hardship prevailing in the country.

A letter dated November 29, 2022, signed by the Director General of the GES, Dr. Eric Nkansah, and handed over to the guardians of the affected students communicated their dismissal.

The GES described the conduct of the affected students in the dismissal letter as undesirable, and contrary to the acceptable standards of conduct generally required of any student in Ghana's educational system.

The disciplinary action is an outcome of an investigation that was launched into the video by the GES and the management of the Chiana SHS after they apologized to the President on behalf of the students involved.

The NDC called on the school authorities to provide psychological help to the girls through their guidance and counseling unit.
