President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has appealed to students who will be going back to school to observe safety protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in schools.
In his 22nd address to the nation on measures against COVID-19, the President reminded students that their actions or inactions will determine whether schools will continue to be opened.
“Your attitude, behaviour and self-discipline will determine whether schools will continue to be opened. You should stop the virus from spreading at school.
Don’t give me a reason to close down the school. I have done my best to reopen. Promise through your action to do the best”, he said.
President Nana Addo acknowledged that learning at home even with online learning has been difficult and as such we must put in the efforts to put that behind us.
Meanwhile, the President has observed with distress the disregard for safety protocols by some Ghanaians.
He has thus directed the IGP to allow the Police Service enforce the safety protocols such as the wearing of masks at all places and public transports.
Schools were expected to reopen on the 15th of January, 2021, after President Akufo-Addo announced the reopening of schools in his 21st address to the nation.
