The Minister of Education, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh has revealed that the President has set up a special committee under the office of the Senior Minister to ensure the safe reopening of schools across the country.
President Akufo Addo has directed the reopening of schools for only final year students in schools across the country at the end of June.
Ghana has currently recorded over 10,000 coronavirus cases.
Speaking during the disinfection of tertiary institutions in Accra, Dr. Prempeh stated that the safety of the students remains a priority to the government.
“This spraying will occur in both public or private institutions, also not only in those under the Ministry of Education but other institutions outside the ambit of the Ministry. The President has set up a special team under the office of the Senior Minister with the Director-Generals of the Ghana Health Service, Ghana Education Service, Military Logistics, Police Welfare, the Ministries of Information and Local Government to coordinate in the distribution of logistics and ensure that schools reopening happens safely and securely.”
