President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in an address to the nation on May 31, 2020, announced a phased relaxation of restrictions that were imposed to curb the spread of the COVID-19 in the country.

As part of the phased relaxation of the restrictions, the President ordered for schools to be reopened for final year JHS, SHS and university students.

This decision by the President has not been received well by a lot of final year students.

They are protesting on Twitter with the hashtag: #StudentsLivesMatter.

According to most of the students, the decision to return to school will cause more harm than good, taking into consideration the continuous increase in COVID-19 cases.

They are of the view that their lives are more important than completing the academic year and writing exams.


Others also asked some genuine questions which must be answered by authorities before schools resume.

Here are more concerns raised by final year students:

A lot of genuine concerns are being raised by the final year students and we hope the government puts in place measures that will ensure that COVID-19 will not spread in the various schools.
