The headmaster of St Augustine’s College in the Central Region, Joseph Connel, has been interdicted. Mr Connel was asked to step aside on Friday, October 14 by the Ministry of Education for charging unapproved fees.

Onua FM’s correspondent Kwame Kakarba told 3news.com that it all began when the interdicted headmaster charged fresh students GH¢430 aside government’s approved fees.

Most parents were not happy with the situation and some proceeded to lodge a complaint with the Central Region Directorate of the Ghana Education Service.

Kwame Kakarba said a call was placed by Deputy Minister of Education Alexander Kyeremeh, who ordered the immediate interdiction of the headmaster.
