ADISCO Old Boys Probe Ex-Headmaster

ADESAIDAL CARSThe outgoing Headmaster of the Adisadel College at Cape Coast Reverend Herbet K.K. Graham, might be the happiest man on earth.

Reverend graham is retiring with mouth-watering packages from the school.

Apart from other incentives, the retired headmaster has been given four luxurious vehicles as retirement packages.

The vehicles, a Nissan Xterra, Ford Explorer, BMW four wheel drive and an Opel Saloon car were alleged to have been purchased with special levy of GH¢30 per child imposed on the 1,700 student population. This amount to a total of GH¢51,000.

Worried about this development, the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the school’s Old Boys Association, has initiated on investigation into the mather.

The investigation is meant to establish whether the levies were actually used to purchase the vehicles.

The Deputy Secretary of the NEC, Mr. Anthony Awotwe, who disclosed this to the Times in an interview in Accra on Wednesday on the sideline of the launching of the school’s 104th Speech and Prize Giving and Founders’ Day, said a committee had been tasked to come out with a report within one month.

He appealed to the Old Boys Association to remain calm, while a thorough investigations were conducted to establish the facts.

The celebration organized, by the 1989 Year Group (Santa 89) was to reward deserving students and teachers as whiles as solicit funds towards the development of the school.

Mr. Awotwe said although, the Parent Teacher Association (P.T.A) had denied the acquisition of the luxurious vehicle, it would leave no stone unturned to get to the bottom of the matter.

He said that the findings of the committee would be made public.

There was public outrage from the Parent Teachers Association (PTA) and Old Boys of the school when news broke out that Revered Graham was taking home four luxuries vehicles as his retirement packages.

The Cape Coast –based PTA of the school was said to have rejected a letter of appreciation from the headmaster that had indicated that the PTA bought some vehicles for him as a retirement package. By Bernard Benghan
