The Minister of Education, Mr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh has sounded a strong warning to teachers who atopaually abuse female students.

According to Napo, he will be tempted to shoot any teacher who dares abuse her daughter atopaually.

He disclosed that the students have be placed in the care of teachers in trust and so it is ethically wrong for any teacher to engage himself in an amorous relationship with any student.

He added that teachers have a duty to protect the rights of girls placed in their care and urged heads of the various schools to take steps towards protecting female students.

The Manhyia South legislator made the revelation whilst speaking to some school heads in the Ashanti regional capital.

“We are all heads, if these young girls were our daughters how would we feel? Anybody without an uncaring feeling will suffer the consequences thereof. If you have your daughter in the school and notice that virtually somebody is breaching the relationship; I know some people here who will take up guns, if it happens to my daughter I will take up a gun.

“Somebody’s daughter is equally your daughter. As head of schools you act in place of parents. Things that we do that affect girl child education irritate me in a very different way. We cannot let our young girls be subjects to such inhumane treatment. We cannot allow that to continue. I’m going to hold every regional director responsible. If such things happen in your schools act appropriately.”
