A major worry for President Nana Addo is the continuous stay at home by school going children for fear of the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Reopening of schools have been the topic for discussions for majority of Ghanaians, stakeholders and some teacher unions in the country. Some have argued that reopening of schools in this current state will be a disaster for the students and the country as a whole.
“Reopening of schools is on the cards of the president with consultations ongoing and soon a decision will be reached.”
The Presidential Advisor on Health, Dr. Nsiah Asare who dropped this hint noted that the President is very much concerned about the safety and welfare of his people hence the decision to slowly ease the restrictions.
Speaking on with Agya Wusu, the host of LINK AGOO AM SHOW, Dr. Nsiah Asare noted that though those calling for the immediate re-opening of schools have genuine concern, a possible escalation of the virus is something that cannot be thrown away considering our way of life as Ghanaians and how these school kids are transported to and fro school each day.
