Many people have recently fumed with anger that Achimota school applies different rules to caucasian student with long flowing hair and Ghanaian students with dreadlocks but Counselor Lutterodt disagrees with the comparison.
“If an expatriate is going to Achimota school the entry requirements for a racial person will not be the same as a Ghanaian,” he said on Kastle Drive via Cape Coast-based Kastle FM.
He added “If a Jamaican who is a foreigner is coming to our school and they have dreadlocks we can admit him because it’s part of him and he declares it but dreadlocks isn’t part of our culture and that’s the standard for the school.
Speaking on the issue of selective application of rules to some students at the Achimota school, Counselor Lutterodt told Amansan Krakye that the dreadlocks students should not be admitted at the Achimota school unless they shave their hair.
“The boy that we’re talking about cannot enter into the military school with dreadlocks, he’ll be made to shave it,” he told the host.
“In America no matter how long your hair is, once you choose to be in the military, you shave all your hair. So I don’t know why this should even lead to a governmental argument,” he ended.
Meanwhile, Ghanaian award-winning musician, Ras Kuuku has threatened the management of Achimota school with curses for refusing two students with dreadlocks admission into the school.
