This follows claims by authorities of the school that the Achimota Preparatory School is a private school stating that it is registered as a company limited by guarantee.
The Ghana Education Service (GES) in recent times, has indicated the intention to take over management of the school and convert it into a government school.
This development has not gone down well with authorities of the school stating that government has no right to claim its ownership.
But the Deputy Minister for Education, Dr Yaw Adutwum in a rebuttal, stated that the school was established several years ago with the sponsorship of the government on a property belonging to the state, hence cannot be said to be a private school.
