Lawyer George Tetteh Wayoe is positive and confident that his clients, the two dreadlocked students who were admitted to Achimota after a High court’s ruling will win the Attorney-General’s appeal.
According to the Achimota School, the court among others erred by indicating that the rules and regulations of Achimota School concerning ensuring uniformity in appearance are unlawful and interferes with the manifestation of one’s religious rights.
The school, therefore, urged the Appeals Court to set the entire judgment that orders it to admit the student aside, and the plaintiff ordered to comply with the school’s regulations if he chooses to be a student of the school.
Meanwhile, the Attorney-General’s office has also filed an appeal on the case, asking the court to uphold Achimota School’s arguments and rule in favour of the school.
But in an interview with the media, Lawyer Tetteh Wayoe said the appeal is not of a surprise but believes they will win it.
“We’re gunning for another big victory,” he said.
