Ejisu residents unhappy about multiple sex scandals at Ejisuman SHS
Residents of Ejisu are calling for strict disciplinary measures to tackle indiscipline among students and teachers at Ejisuman Senior High School.
They say wanton misconduct has brought untold shame to the school and the Ejisu state in general.
The school has been hit, at least, by two sex-related scandals in the last two years.
The concerns come as school authorities expelled seven students from boarding house over the contents of an explicit sex video that has gone viral on social media platforms.
Ejisuman SHS came under the spotlight two years ago after eight female students broke their silence and accused teachers of sexually abusing them after a leaked video went viral.
They accused the teachers of making advances at them to the extent some being forced to stroke the manhood of their teachers.
The Ghana Education Service upon investigations dismissed three teachers and a non-teaching staff who was an accountant, while four others were transferred.
Recently, some female students in yet another viral video, has put the school’s name in the news again.
They justified having multiple sexual partners and condemned girls who refuse to have sex with men in the latest viral video.
One of them is seen encouraging other girls to sleep with men for monetary reward.
Unhappy about the conduct of the students, school authorities have expelled them from the boarding houses.
Residents have condemned the behaviour of students and teachers who bring the name of the school and community into disrepute.
Ejisu is not only home to powerful but revered bravery queen mother, Yaa Asantewaa but one of the respected oldest traditional towns headed by the Paramount chief, Oguakuro Afrane Okesse IV.
“Nowadays, the way and manner things are going at Ejisuman is becoming unbecoming. Looking at issues concerning indiscipline in the school, as a good citizen, I will urge the school authorities to put measures in place and sanction those who exhibit such behaviours so that no one will go and do same to tarnish the name of the school,” says Frank Nkrumah, a resident.
According to him, the sex-related scandals in the school have made him and other natives of Ejisu a laughing stock among their peers.
“The developments at Ejisuman SHS are not only affecting the school alone but the entire Ejisuman state.
“If you go to Accra, we have a lot of friends. They will call you and ask my friend what’s going on there. And then they would be laughing and teasing you because the school in your community, a lot of bad things are going on there”.
Kwabena Adu, a taxi driver is equally worried over the development as well.
“I am concerned about Ejisuman. Ejisuman is one of the big schools in Ejisu. When you hear about these kinds of things; children making such comments on social media, we become worried. We are really worried about such situations.”
The Ejisu Traditional Council made up of over 50 towns, is equally not happy at the developments.
Meanwhile, the Ghana Education Service has declined comments until it exhausts all available disciplinary avenues.
