Cyril George Lutterodt, also known as Counselor Lutterodt, a controversial marriage counselor, has stated that he fully supports Achimota School’s decision not to accept students with dreadlocks, and that this should not be interpreted as a violation of human rights.
“You have been assigned to a school, and the school has determined that your outlook is incompatible with the school’s guidelines. This is not a violation of anyone’s human rights; if you can’t be among them and do what is acceptable, go somewhere else,” he raged in an interview monitored by iDO GH News
There has been widespread condemnation of the Achimota school’s decision to defy a Ghana Education Service (GES) order to re-admit students with dreadlocks, with human rights organizations labeling the situation as discriminatory.

“If we allow such people tomorrow someone will say I’m a man but I do wear skirts and so what the guys are wearing as school uniform, he’ll prefer to wear a skirt and can we stop the person,” he justified.
“There are some things you can’t alter, so Ghanaians, please allow us to think logically. Someone claims he is a child of sea gods, so he is a Rastafarian, and if we can’t accept that person in our school, that’s it; if you like, you can set up a school for him or teach him at home,” he added.
“But me I’m not happy that GES says he should be admitted into the Achimota school, the law must stand tall and if not so we’ll find ourselves in trouble someday,” he told Amansan Krakye on Kastle FM in Cape Coast.
