Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
According to him, it is not prudent to reopen schools when the number of COVID-19 cases in Ghana keeps rising.
In an interview with Radio Central, E.L said the GES needs to hold on a little longer because there is no need for school children to rush back to school and get sick.
“The numbers are still going up so I don’t know what they mean by things are safe. Because as per my observations and my knowledge the numbers are still rising. No where in the world right now have schools been opened for students to attend. So I will advise that we should hold on a little longer because there is no need for us to rush to go back into the world and get hurt or get sick," he stated.
He added that if care is not taken and the COVID- 19 cases escalate in Ghana like it has in other parts of the world, the effects will be devastating because Ghana is still a third world country.
“Because if Coronavirus should escalate in Ghana just like what happened in some foreign countries, the effects will surely be devastating due to the fact that we are still a third world country”, he cautioned.
