Speaking at the “Youth Must Know” series in Kumasi, National Youth Organiser for NPP, Henry Nana Boakye also known as “Nana B” has slammed the NDC saying they are loud in making calls for the shut down of all the Senior High School just for their parochial political interest.
Nana B said 112 SHS students contracting COVID-19 should not cause closure of schools across the country.
There have been intense calls from various interest groups with the latest being the National Council Of Parent Teacher Associations of Ghana, urging government to close down schools to curb the spread of the virus but the government has dismissed the calls.
Nana B said “When you look at the number of students and teachers in our schools they add up to 580,000, the number of students who have been infected by COVID-19 and are asymptomatic are 112, with 4 teachers infected. The NDC are saying because of this 116 infected persons we should let 580,000 students leave the schools and go home. What the NDC has forgotten is that any student who has contracted the disease got it from home and took it to the school.”
