TALENSI ROCK YOUTH ASSOCIATION (TAROYA)
RETRACTION AND UNQUALIFIED APPOLOGY TO THE TONGRAN, THE PARAMOUNT CHIEF OF THE TALENSI TRADITIONAL AREA AND THE TALENSI TRADITIONAL COUNCIL BY THE TALENSI ROCK YOUTH ASSOCIATION (TAROYA)
16TH JULY, 2021
With regret and deep remorse, the leadership of the Talensi Rock Youth Association wish to state emphatically that before the locking of the office of Headmaster of the Gbeogo School for the Deaf and subsequent press release on the 14th July 2021, in connection with the impasse in the school, the Tongran Kugbil-somire Nalebig tang, the Baare Naab Nya-akora maantii and the Talensi traditional council as an institution were never notified.
And so, we further wish to state that the tongran or his divisional chief neither instigated nor gave their blessings to the actions of the youth as might be perceived out there by the general public.
We therefore accordingly retract the portions of our press statement where mention was made of the Tongran, the Baare naab and the Talensi traditional council and subsequently render an unqualified apology for same.
However, we still wish to appeal to them and other stakeholders; that is, the Upper East regional director of education and the upper east regional minister to intervene in the matter in order that the right thing will be done to find a replacement to the office of Headmaster of the School.
This we believe will calm down the tension and pace way for productive academic work to proceed in the school.
LONG LIVE THE TONGRAN
LONG LIVE TALENTENG
LONG LIVE UPPER EAST REGION AND
LONG LIVE GHANA
