Spokesperson for the Parents Teachers Association (PTA) of the Achimota Preparatory School, Julius Adusi Poku, has said the operations and management of the school remains under the control of its current Management.

Mr Poku’s information comes in the wake of news that the Ghana Education Service (GES) was making moves to draft the school into existing public schools.

A notice by the GES of its intention to take-over the school effective today, January 27th, 2020 threatened a clash between the school’s administration and GES after the later also hinted new staff would be employed.

According to Mr Poku who spoke to Adom News, although the directive by the GES was to take effect today, normal school work continues as neither external personnel nor teachers have been posted to the school.


“We have not heard any word from the GES and everyone; the teachers and students are still in class. All I know is we are in school and everything is under control,” he explained.

Meanwhile, a parent, Frimpong Manso who was present in the institution explained he had to be present for fear of what might happen to his ward should there be a clash.
