President Akufo-Addo on Sunday announced that all students from kindergarten to Junior High School will return to school on January 15.
Schools have been shut for about ten months following the outbreak of the novel covid-19 pandemic.
However, the president in his 21st update on measures taken against the spread of the virus said: “Our children must go to school, albeit safely, and we are satisfied that, in the current circumstances, the re-opening of our schools is safe.”
