Don't give me a reason to close down schools again
The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has asked students not to give him a reason to shut down schools a second time. "As we take these big steps to go back to school, your attitude, your behaviour, your self-discipline will decide whether or not our schools will remain open. I'm pleading with you, please observe the COVID-19 protocols at all times. You must maintain the sense of discipline and responsibility to stop the virus from spreading in your schools and for those students at home as well. Wear your mask at all times. Wash and sanitize your hands regularly. Protect yourself, protect each other, protect your teachers, protect your parents but please do not give me a reason to close down schools." After nine months of closure due to COVID-19, President Akufo-Addo in his 21st address announced the opening of schools for basic schools on 15th January.
