About two weeks ago, news went rife all over the Ghanaian social media space that, it has been confirmed that all schools in Ghana are reopening for academic purposes on 8th September 2020.
The source of the information was particularly not known, as people linked it to the Education Minister, Education Ministry as an organization etc. It was finally meant to be a rumour where social media were looking forward to a confirmation or denial of the story from an appropriate source.
The Ministery of Education and the Ghana Education Sevice, GES, has finally and officially responded to the rumours that took centre stage of social media and left people wondering and wandering because it had no proper source.
Speaking at the National Inspectorate Board(NIB) School Establishment and Inspection Policy (SEaIP) Validation Workshop, Mr. Gyasi, the Chief Director of the Ministry of Education,made mention that, such reports been bandied about are not the position of the Ministry of Education where he is the Chief Director. He further said that when we get to the bridge we shall surely cross, and focus on that ,as the Ministry of Education is currently focusing on final year students writing their WASSCE.
Mediaghananews.com hope and pray that the necessary measures will be adequately and competently put in place by the Ministry of Education headed by it’s Minister Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh so schools can be reopened in the very near future.
