Nana Amponsah Kwah IV- Chief for Kwanwoma has kicked against pressure exerted by some Ghanaians on His Excellency Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo for the abrogation of the imposed restriction on academic activities in the wake of covid-19 pandemic.
Though not against the re-opening of schools, the traditional lord for the community located within the administrative domain of Atwima Kwanwoma District of Ashanti region has advised government not to allow himself to be pressured by the numerous calls to make any haste decision that will worsen the worrying rate of covid-19 infection in the country.
He strongly counseled the President of Ghana to foremost ensure that schools and students in the country are well positioned i.e equipping them with all the required safety logistics needed to offer them enough defense against the deadly coronavirus.
Hand-rub sanitizers, nose masks he recommended should be made available for students at all levels including adequate provision of veronica buckets etcetera for all academic institutions.
In a cozy discourse with www.leakynews.net, Nana Amposah Kwah IV who doubles as an educationist challenged that the sky-rocketing number of confirmed cases recorded so far should alone inform Ghanaians that soon lifting of the ban on the 31st of May as suggested by the majority will spell doom for the country.
“Will schools and students be well defended against the virus? Will teachers be able to handle their colossal student population in the wake of the pandemic? I think those who are calling for the dissolution of the ban on schools should go back and come again”, he noted in his statement.
