An Accra Human Rights Court has adjourned to September 25 an application for an injunction filed by students of the Methodist University College against the Ministry of Education, the National Accreditation Board (NBA) and the Attorney General’s Department.
The NBA ordered the removal of the students from the university for what they described as wrong entry requirement to the school.
The lawyer for the 79 students challenging NAB’s decision, Gary Nimako, told Citi News
some technicalities needed to the sorted out before the application could be heard.
He said: “There are certain procedural things which have to be complied with. There is an injunction application pending which will be moved on the 25th of September.”
Mr. Nimako also stated that his clients have been treated unfairly saying, “we want the court to make an order to declare that the directive of withdrawing the students is unlawful and a perpetual injunction restraining the Accreditation Board and the Ministry of Education from interfering in the rights of the students to pursue higher education.”
