SHSs Won’t Be Closed Cos Of Just Over 110 Coronavirus Cases – Education Minister Shuns Critics.

Even though there have been many calls for the various schools across the country be shut down because of the surge of the Coronavirus, the government and other stakeholders like the Peace Council and co beg to differ.

To the Education Minister who doubles as a Member of Parliament, Hon. Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh [Napo], there is no need for schools to be shut down because the cases could be more if the kids are released to go home.

Interacting with a renowned media outlet, Napo said;

“I don’t agree [that schools should be closed down]. and students should follow protocols and ensure they are safe. Who should go and work for you to be paid with the money they generate? Go to work and just protect yourself.”
