Honorable Yaw Osei Adutwum, the Deputy Minister for Education has brought to the attention of the general public to dismiss reports being set for schools’ reopening in the country.
He said when the decision is finalized,, it would be communicate to the general public.
News circulating on various social media pages suggested that basic and secondary schools will resume in September after being closed in the early days of March as part of measures to help curb the COVID19 Pandemic.
The Deputy Minister spoke to JoyNews which was monitored by Ghana Articles on the ‘Beyond the Lockdown’ programme that students should not pay attention to whatever they see on social media but should rather use the time learn more using the various Digital Learning platforms provided.
“Whatever you see on social media, don’t trust it.” He said.
He also mentioned that defeating COVID19 is more important at the moment.
He again continued to encourage students, final year students most especially to rather take due advantage of the time to prepare themselves and be ready since government can call back at any time.
“Government makes the determination that you are going to take your exam…you would be ready.”
According to the Honourable Minster, WAEC has by far not made any determinations as to when final year students are to write exams.
“WAEC and Ghana Education Service (GES) are closely monitoring the Covid-19 pandemic to choose a suitable date for students,” he said.
