The Ghana Education Service (GES) has directed the management of Wesley Girls’ High School to allow Muslim students at the school to observe the ongoing Ramadan fast.
The Service, however, also directed Muslim parents who wards will observe the fast to write to the school and pledge to be liable for the health of their wards in any event of ill-health.
This comes after authorities of Wesley Girls High School prevented Ismael Bushira and other Muslim students from fasting, which sparked concerns among the Ghanaian Muslim community.
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.
