Who Should Work For Teachers To Enjoy Free Salaries? – Education Minister Rhetorically Asks.

There have been many suggestions for the various schools across the country to be shut down because of the increase in the Coronavirus case count.

Many well meaning Ghanaians have posited that the Minister of Education’s own COVID-19 experiences, as he narrated on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo with Kwami Sefa Kayi, should encourage him to push for closing down of schools to protect teachers and learners from the virus.

To the Education Minister, Hon. Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh [Napo], there is no need for schools to be shut down.

Speaking in a phone interview on Peace FM, Napo said;

“I don’t agree [that schools should be closed down]. Teachers 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.”

“So if all other workers and essential service providers like those at GRIDCo, ECG and others also say they are scared of the COVID-19 and won’t work, how will the country run? When they don’t come, the country will come crumbling down. So teachers need to be in school.”

What do you make of this?
