john-mahama-shsAdugyama Community Day Senior High School has vowed to chase out their headmaster for charging the students exorbitant hostel fees. According to the angry youth, Mr. Adom has taken four hundred and fifty Ghana cedis (GHC 450) each from over fifty (50) first year students who are currently using a cocoa shed in the community as their hostel. They stressed that Mr. Adom has also resorted to charging unapproved fees as hostel fees whilst the hostel facility that was built by government.

The youth further accused the headmaster shutting down the students’ toilet facility, forcing them to practice open defecation. The headmaster has also prevented women in the community from selling food and water in the school. They explained that students sometimes have to walk for a mile to get food at home during break time because only one food vender is allowed to serve over one thousand (1000) in the school.

They emphasized that they have informed all stakeholders including the chief of the community, Nana Amankwaatia, and the District chief executive of the area about the appalling situation but their concerns are yet to be addressed. The agitated youth have however hinted that they would stage a massive demonstration in the coming days to register their resentment about what they termed “inhuman behavior” of Mr. Adom towards his students. The intended demonstration according to them would be used to eject the headmaster from his office.
