Regional Minister worried over high rate of immorality at Asesewa SHS

Mr Ebenezer Okletey Terlabi, Deputy Eastern Regional Minister, has expressed worry about the high rate of immorality that has engulfed most students and tutors of the Asesewa Senior High School (SHS) in the Upper Manya Krobo District.

“Allegations and rumours of sexual escapades, including criminal abortions by some female students are being bandied all over town and even beyond”.

Mr Terlabi, who was addressing the fifth speech and prize giving day of the school at the weekend, noted that most students were often seen loitering in town in the night instead of being in school.

He charged the governing board, the school administration and the student leadership to find a quick solution to those problems before the school’s image got tarnished.

“You should know that you are here to learn in order to have a bright future. If you allow these things to control you, you may end up with a bleak future”.

Mr Terlabi noted with satisfaction that in the midst of all the challenges facing the school, it had consistently produced very good grades at the West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSE).

Prizes were later distributed to students who excelled academically.
