The Ghana Education Service (GES) has directed management of Wesley Girls’ High School to allow Muslim students at the school to fast in the ongoing Ramadan.
It comes after reports that the headmistress of the school has denied a Muslim student her right to fast during the ongoing Ramadan. The development has sparked concerns among Ghanaians including some Muslim lawmakers.
Reacting to the development, the GES in a statement asked the schools in the country to allow the students who are Muslims the room to fast.
It however asked parents to sign undertaking that they will not hold the schools responsible for any adverse health implication as a result of the fasting.
