The Headmaster of the Ghana Senior High School, Doughlas Haruna Yakubu, has described a viral video in which some students are seen sleeping in supposed toilet cubicles as mischievous and a deliberate misrepresentation of facts.

Mr Yakubu believes that the viral videos were staged and dramatised by the journalist to dent the image of the school.

He added that the school has adequate space to accommodate more students and does not need to convert toilet facilities into dormitories for students.

“That facility has been there for so many years, it has never been a dormitory or a storage room, it is a store more or less. In the 60s when Kwame Nkrumah built the rooms, they were washrooms, and so they still have the design of washrooms, but the facility has not been modernised, so they are just small, small cubicles and that is where we keep our chop boxes when students are travelling,” Mr Yakubu told Citi Breakfast Show host Bernard Avle.

The headmaster added “They are never sleeping places…these materials that you see might have been taken from the dormitory for him [journalist] to cover his videos and leave. Those cubicles are so tiny and so hot that students cannot live in them. We have enough space, so this is not fair.”

He revealed that the school has six toilet facilities to cater for the entire male student population.
