It’s too early to reopen schools in Ghana – E.L advises GES


Ghanaian rapper, Elorm Adabla, better known as E.L has advised Ghana Education Service (GES) to tread cautiously in its attempt to reopen schools.

According to the prolific rapper, GES should not be in a haste in their quest to get the academic calendar back on track.

In a recent interview with Amansan Krakye on Radio Central, E.L was quizzed as to whether it is prudent for schools to be reopened sooner or later.

He advised “The numbers are still going up so I don’t know what they mean by things are safe. Because as per my observations and my knowledge the numbers are still rising.

“Nowhere in the world right now have schools been opened for students to attend. So I will advise that we should hold on a little longer because there is no need for us to rush to go back into the world and get hurt or get sick.

“Because if Coronavirus should escalate in Ghana just like what happened in some foreign countries, the effects will surely be devastating due to the fact that we are still a third world country”, he cautioned.

The past days have seen Teacher Unions challenging the decision of the Ghana Education Service to reopen schools even though the Coronavirus infections are on the rise in Ghana.
