The opposition NDC believes that the government is unnecessarily bringing school children in harm’s way.
“The NDC believes that the government is unnecessarily exposing the school children and bring them in harm’s way, whereas the president himself and other high profile public personalities like the chief justice have gone into isolation for fear of coming into contact with people who have tested positive to COVID-19 .”
“All effort to shut down schools in the face of positive cases recorded has proven futile. This is against the backdrop that some government institutions have shut down for fear of the spread of the virus.”
“Under the guides of protecting the children, parents are not even allowed to visit their wards in the schools.”
“It has come to light that the decision by the government to send final year and Go track student to school had nothing to do with preparation towards examination but their hidden agenda was to assemble them for registration,” the statement released the NDC
