Assin Chiefs Remain Adamant


Ghana Immigration Service are seeking to smoke peace pipe with Assin chiefs over the closure of the school but chiefs are resolute in carrying out their threats to close down the school.

Officials of the Ghana Immigration Service and the Ministry of Interior are expected in Assin Fosu in the Central region today to dialogue with the chiefs as the two parties seek to bring to an end the rancour that has characterised the admissions to the school in the last days.

Ultimate News’ Baah Acheamfuor reported that the chiefs in the area yesterday held a press conference threatening to close down the school as they complain of continuous snub in terms of admissions to the school.

Despite giving out the land and other buildings that house the immigration students, the chiefs complain of non payment of compensation due them as well as denial of indigenes admissions to the school since its inception in 1998 including the promised protocol admissions.

They have therefore threatened to prevent the new recruits from accessing the facility today forcing authorities at the school to call for police protection to forestall any eventuality from happening at the school.

The chiefs and the youth of the town are adamant in carrying out their threats if none of their indigenes is granted admission into the school this year.

Officials from the Immigration and Ministry of interior are yet do hit the streets.
