Following the shut down of schools due to covid19 pandemic, the Ghanaian President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo had finally announced that tertiary institutions in the country reopen by August 24 for students who are yet to complete the academic year.

It should be noted that some institutions like The University of Cape Coast (UCC), the University of Health and Allied Sciences (UHAS), technical universities and some other colleges for instance are yet to complete their academic work for this year as a result of the covid 19 pandemic which led to the indefinite closure of the institutions earlier this year.

In his speech, the president said “After extensive stakeholder consultations, the decision has been taken for continuing students in these tertiary institutions to return to school, on 24th August to finish their academic year.”

However, he noted that the government will ensure that all necessary preventive measures are put in place to allow students resume back to school safely. Akufo-Addo said during his 15th COVID-19 national address that “Government, through the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service, will ensure that all these tertiary institutions are disinfected. Universities will be equipped with necessary personal protective equipment and those with their own hospitals and clinics will have isolation centers to deal with positive cases,” Akufo-Addo added.

The president also said that strict adherence to the basic covid 19 preventive measures such as avoidance of mass gatherings, sporting activities or religious activities on campus will be ensured.
Recall that schools in the West African country were closed on March 16, four days after Ghana recorded its first two coronavirus cases. Ghana has since registered 42,532 coronavirus cases as of Sunday, with 231 deaths and 40,362 recoveries.
