A member of the Communication team of the Opposition National Democratic Congress George Nash has warned President Akufo-Addo to allow his child to come home from school.
On June 15, 2020, the President during his address to the nation about the state of the Coronavirus Pandemic in the Country issued a statement that some categories of the academic institution—final year students of universities, senior and junior high schools—should be allowed to return to School so that they could finish their papers.
He ordered that the protocols of COVID-19 should be observed in the various schools, and promised the students of hand sanitizers and three nose masks per head.
Parents of these categories of final year students are in affright, due to the high rise in the numbers of COVID-19 affected persons—even in the opened schools.
Reacting to this as one of the panellists on “Dwenehobiom’–a political talk Show hosted by K.K on Accra-based Hot 93.9FM, the Member of the Communication team of the NDC,George Nash expressed his fury by saying that the President has put his ward to risk by compelling them to stay in the corona virus-ridden school.
The outspoken NDC Communicator in contradiction to the president’s promise of sanitizers, “three nose masks per head and safety to the students, alleged that many of these students have been infected with the virus, and the rest have only been given one nose mask each.
Sounding extremely disdained, George Nash threatened the President by indicating that,” I want my child back home Mr President…I have left my son’s soul, spirit and whole body into the hands of the President, if my child suffers any deadly disease I would hold him responsible”.
The communicator’s concern is not outstanding, as he has, apparently, spoken the minds of most parents whose wards have been asked to stay in school.
