Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea, a Rastafarian would-be first-year Achimota student who has been denied admission because of his dreadlocks says he feels “depressed and disappointed”.
Speaking to Blakk Rasta on Zylofon FM on Monday 22 March, he said: “I feel depressed and disappointed. I think they [his parents] must continue and go to court so that this matter will be solved.”
The student who has been offered General Arts indicated that he, at a point, pressed on his parents to shave his dreadlocks in order to enroll at Achimota, his first-choice school, but his parents did not heed his plea.
When the host asked why he wanted his dreadlocks to be shaved off, Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea explained,
“At a point, I lost hope. I really wanted to go to Achimota because I saw Achimota as a good school…,”.
