NDC Calling For Schools to Shutdown Because of Their Own Political Interest – Nana B



The National Youth Organizer of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Boakye has stated that schools cannot be closed down because 116 persons out of over 580,000 have tested positive for the novel Coronavirus.

According to him, the opposition National Democratic Congress are only calling for a shutdown because of their own political interest.

Speaking at the “Youth Must Know” series in Kumasi, Nana B said the NDC is only putting fear in parents to withdraw their wards from school because whatever allegations they make is not backed by science and data.

“The other day the NDC held a press conference where they called for senior high schools to be shut down because there have been someone or two reported cases. What they said is not based on any scientific research and nor based on any health studies but rather their parochial political interest just to put fear in parents,” Nana B said.

He added, “when you look at the number of students and teachers in our schools they add up to 580,000, the number of students who have been infected by Covid-19 and are asymptomatic are 112, with 4 teachers infected. The NDC are saying because of this 116 infected persons we should let 580,000 students leave the schools and go home. What the NDC has forgotten is that any student who has contracted the disease got it from home and took it to the school.”
