The Greater Regional Director for Education, Monica Ankrah, has emphasized that political activities would not be allowed in schools as students are purposely in schools to study for their final exams.
According to her, Heads of schools have been advised not to allow politicians into their schools to ensure that students serve the purposes of returning to school.
Speaking in an interview with journalists during her visit at the Accra Girls Senior High School to supervise the fumigation of the school as well as welcome students who have recovered after testing positive for coronavirus, Monica Ankrah said.
“Political activities are not allowed in our campuses. They (students) are here to study, write their exams and leave that’s all. So it will be very difficult for individuals to engage our students on political issues while they are in school. We won’t allow that and our headmistresses and headmasters are aware of that.”
On July 6, the Ghana Health Service Accra Girls’ Senior High School recorded it first cases of coronavirus.
A teacher, together with the spouse and six other students, tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
