President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, during his 22nd address to the nation on the management of COVID-19 in the country, asked student not to give him a reason to close down schools again.

According to the President, the attitude, behaviour and self-discipline of students will influence his decision on whether or not schools will remain open.

He, however, pleaded with students to observe the COVID-19 protocols, as well as, maintaining a sense of discipline and responsibility to curb the spread of the virus.

“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,” he said.
