Reopening of schools across the country will be confirmed after a crucial Cabinet meeting on December 30, 2020, UPSANEWSROOM.com has learnt.
Information Minister, Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah has said that although January has been set as the month for reopening of all schools, it is subject to confirmation by the government.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo announced the closure of schools on March 15, 2020, in response to the rising number of Covid-19 cases in Ghana.
Since then, parents and caregivers have been looking forward to the exact date when schools would be reopening after close to ten months of shut down.
But speaking at a press briefing in Accra Wednesday, the Information Minister said the decision to reopen or not would be known by all after the Cabinet meeting on December 30, 2020.
“We know that parents are anxious rightly so. Many of us are parents but schools have to be opened in a careful manner so that we do not have a second wave of infection. The president is just about to take a final decision. He continues to gather both the reports and scenarios. By the 30th when the cabinet is done, a firm decision will be taken.” He said.
